BA in Health Sciences with a minor in Gerontology
Benedictine University

Full-time mom

Why did you decide to attend Loyola’s Weekend JD program?
It was the perfect way for me to go back to school. With four kids, attending an evening part-time or full-time program would not have worked.

What do you like best about the program?
I love the fact that it is every other weekend so I can pace myself and juggle everything with enough days in between to prioritize whatever needs to be accomplished.

What do you plan to do with your law degree?
Get back into the workforce! I have been volunteering for many years but feel that a law degree will allow me to make positive changes and help people in a broader sense.  My areas of interest are health law and public interest law.

What advice can you give prospective students interested in applying to Loyola’s Weekend JD program?
Oh, just do it!

In five words or less, describe Loyola University Chicago School of Law
A dream come true
