More about Jaime: Jaime took the scenic route to law school. She spent six years as an editor and designer at the Austin American-Statesman and Statesman.com. While there, her favorite task was creating the editorial pages that offered balanced perspectives on complex issues. Her biggest struggle was learning everything most sports fans take a lifetime to absorb in about a month (what’s a layup, again?). After that, she worked at Dimensional Fund Advisors, editing materials ranging from research by Nobel Prize-winning economists to recruiting brochures.

In her first semester at BU Law, Jaime has enjoyed exploring what the school has to offer. Her favorite activity has been the ABA Negotiation competition, where she and her partner were selected to represent BU at the regional level. She is a class representative for BU Law Students for Reproductive Justice and an at-large 1L representative for the American Constitution Society.

Jaime spends time outside the classroom exploring Boston and the surrounding areas with her husband, a Northeastern University School of Law first-year student; coming up with endless ways to combine beans, vegetables, and grains; dangling strings in front of her rambunctious cat; and daydreaming about reading for fun again one day.
