Personal Narrative

After graduating from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy with a B.S. in Marine Transportation, and before enrolling in law school, Elizabeth sailed for five years as a deck officer aboard ocean-going tugboats and cargo ships. While working her way up the ranks, Elizabeth gained experience handling a variety of cargos and making port calls worldwide. Elizabeth’s responsibilities included preparation of incident reports, maintenance of safety systems, and organizing port and cargo logistics as well as managing the deck department. Before transitioning shoreside, Elizabeth obtained her USCG Masters license, unlimited tonnage upon oceans, and Master of Towing Vessels, upon oceans. For a brief time, Elizabeth developed course curriculums for Mid-Atlantic Maritime Academy and was an instructor for several courses, including Tankerman Person-In-Charge, Tankerman Assistant, Search and Rescue, and Cargo Handling.

Elizabeth graduated cum laude from University of Baltimore School of Law in May 2020. While in law school, Elizabeth served as Editor in Chief of the University of Baltimore Law Review, and as a staff editor, she had two-short articles published on the Law Review’s website. Additionally, Elizabeth was a student attorney with the Legal Data & Design Clinic. Elizabeth’s clinic work focused on gathering and wrangling data, and then using the data for its persuasive effect in legal contexts. She also served as an intern for the Honorable Marvin J. Garbis and the Honorable A. David Copperthite at the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland. This past year, Elizabeth was a law clerk for the Honorable Douglas R. M. Nazarian on the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, Maryland’s intermediary appellate court.
