More about Dee: Before law school, Dee worked in medical research administration and private academic tutoring. Dee’s college research focused on differences between the formal religious philosophies and the daily practices of Jains in Varanasi, India, where she spent her junior year of college. She hopes she will be able to put her knowledge of Hindi language and Indian culture and customs to use again in her future career.

As a law student, Dee is currently interested in tax, healthcare, and transactional business law. Dee looks forward to learning more about international trade and transactions through her upcoming work for the International Law Journal.

In her free time Dee enjoys cycling, hiking, cross-country skiing, boating, and dance. Dee is an avid reader, and a lover of historical fiction and non-fiction. Dee is an award-winning poet; a weekend pursuit she hopes to pursue more seriously again after law school.
