Why did you decide to pursue clerkship with Clark Partington? Clark Partington embodies all the pertinent characteristics that make a law firm great and endure over time: The attorneys are highly educated and dedicated to improving themselves, the firm is intent on giving back to the community and has hence become an integral part of Pensacola and its surrounding area.

What is the most rewarding thing about your job so far? The most rewarding part of my clerkship is the ability to figure things out on my own while being able to ask questions along the way. I thrive in a macro-management environment and appreciate the freedom and responsibility that comes with such a management style. Additionally, it has been a wonderful opportunity to be exposed to the plethora of legal services offered by the firm, each demanding and exciting in its own way.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? I enjoy gardening and am proud to have nursed a plumeria, two desert roses, a lemon tree, and a bleeding heart through one Arizona summer.
