Lessons Learned

My fondest memory was really the warmth of the people I worked with. Before I started, Bob invited me and my toddler to breakfast at my favorite diner to explain the project and ask if I was interested in working on it. Once I arrived, I was in the last few months of my second pregnancy, and the flexibility everyone gave me to accommodate my pregnancy was simply wonderful. The project was also incredibly interesting!

Impact on my Career

I worked at Juvenile Law Center during the summer of 2007 as a Fels Fellow. I was involved in a project that studied juvenile diversion practices across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. I created a survey, compiled the results, and presented my findings to the Models for Change statewide task force working on juvenile diversion. As a result of my involvement with the project, my research and legal career now center around families and children and their interactions with the law.
