Before attending St. Mary’s University School of Law, I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business from Columbia College, and my Masters Degree in Business from Webster University. Except for law school, my degrees were earned in non-traditional, evening forums, so I understand the hard work necessary to reach educational goals.
