The best part of my position is derived from my ability to assist both my organization and the human capital within it, to reach both our corporate and profession goals. I have the pleasure of utilizing my legal skills and abilities in partnership with my business knowledge to assist in developing the strategic plans for my business groups while managing the employment and labor law requirements of the Human Resources Department.

How did your experience at Morgan prepare you for your career/internship/graduate program?

My experience at Morgan State University was pivotal to my career success. As a student at the University I was challenged academically, and nurtured personally this combination was essential to my success. As I entered Law School at the University of Baltimore, I was fully confident in my academic capabilities and had developed enough confidence in myself to withstand the rigor of process.

What advice do you have for students who are seeking opportunities in your field?

I would advise students to utilize all the resources that the University makes available to them, to broaden their skills and their exposure in their chosen career path.
