Hi, I’m Jeremy, and I’m a 3L. I’m a native of St. Louis (Marquette High School), and attended Washington University as an undergrad. I graduated in 2003 with a triple major in finance, human resources, and management. While in school I was active in my fraternity, Beta Theta Pi, student government, and university administrative committees. Today I proudly continue to serve Beta as a district chief, and Wash. U. as a member of the alumni admissions program.

I’m a non-traditional law student because I spent five and a half years in the workforce before returning to academia. My career thus far includes three years as a buyer for a major national retailer and almost another three years as national sales director for a human resources consulting firm. I wouldn’t trade the experience I’ve gained for anything, and am happy to talk with you about returning to law school “later” in life.

I chose Mizzou Law for many reasons, but primarily because, in contrast to my alma mater, it offers a unique cultural experience. When I visited MU for the first time as an admitted student, it just felt like home. Everyone here is friendly, approachable, and down-to-earth—even the faculty! The choice of a law school is both tough and critical, and I encourage you to do as I did: go with your gut. As far as the details go, my fellow Ambassadors and I are at your service!
