Hello listeners! My name is Brooke, and I'm an undergraduate student at Oklahoma State University. I'm majoring in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and planning to apply to law school this fall. I'm interning for Leg Up Legal and I'll be today's guest host for The Law Lives Project. This week's guest had a rough start to law school due to a bad relationship, but managed to find her way. She got exposure to law by working for a jury consulting company and she decided to continue working for that company and go to law school part-time. After law school, she started working for an insurance defense law firm, and she utilized the early years of her career to explore lots of different practice areas and practicing different law firms. Eventually, she found her way in-house and she primarily focuses on regulatory practice in consumer finance. Listen to the episode to hear all of the ups and downs of her career.
