1997 Major: Biology and Environmental Science & Policy; minor in Chemistry
"I was a biology and environmental science and policy double major with a chemistry minor. When I went to Duke I was preparing to go to either a graduate biology program or medical school but made a pivot in my junior year to apply to law school. I have been able to use my science background in my legal career working in intellectual property law, now on behalf of a pharmaceutical company. Having my biology and chemistry background from Duke has been critical to my current work."
"I had no idea what intellectual property really was at Duke and I would be happy to talk to any Duke biology students about what kind of careers I have seen with biology degrees. The students have all made a great choice in choosing to study biology! Please don't hesitate to reach out to me on LinkedIn or through the Duke Alumni office."
