About

The short version:

I’m a nerd, a recent law grad, a Christian, a bookworm, a political nerd, a sports fan, in short, a human being who’s trying to make sense of the world around me.

Or if you prefer, the formal version:

I was homeschooled from the start of formal schooling in 1st grade through graduation from high school. Growing up in a politically active family, at one time I was the youngest ever precinct committeewoman elected to my county Republican Executive Committee (then I grew up and switched parties). I have a B.A. in Information and Computer Science from Covenant College, a graduate certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and Intercultural Studies from Wheaton College, and my J.D. from the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Prior to law school, I dabbled in several different fields, including spending time on the English faculty at the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam in Hanoi, VN, where I taught reading and writing for international relations to foreign affairs and international law students.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the title of my blog is a reference to one of my favorite novels, Tristram Shandy.
