Professional Questions

What was it about the legal field (or marketing) that drew your interest?

While I have not get attended law school, I plan to within the next year. What initially drew my interest in the legal field was hearing my mom describe having a legal education as like having a superpower. I also love to be challenged, think critically, and solve problems, which are things I believe the legal field offers.

Who or what helps you to stay motivated at Geraci?

I love helping others, so when I can help our clients or my coworkers in any way, I feel extremely motivated.

Who has had the most impact on your career?

While I feel my “career” hasn’t truly begun yet, my English professor, Suki Fisher, has had the most impact on my employment history thus far. She encouraged me to become a composition tutor (something I never would have imagined myself being good at). Through tutoring, I became much more confident with my writing, speaking, and leadership skills. I don’t believe I would be who I am today if it wasn’t for Professor Fisher’s encouragement.

Who is or was the most influential person in your life?

My mom. She is an attorney and her work ethic, passion, and determination has amazed me for as long as I can remember. She is who inspired me to purse a legal career.

What is your proudest achievement?

Graduating from UCLA.

Education
