She has worked with Street Law since she was a student at Rutgers Law School – Camden in 2004. Although she has spent time in both public and private schools in underprivileged areas through the program, she is most passionate about working with youth in juvenile detention centers. In addition to serving as a member of Street Law’s Leadership Circle, she is a regular volunteer at the Burlington County Juvenile Detention Center in New Jersey, and loves the time she spends there. She truly believes that our juvenile justice system is too punitive and not rehabilitative enough, and hopes her work with the Street Law program is making a difference in improving the lives of a very vulnerable population.
