The faculty at Biola provided me with the support, encouragement and foundation I needed to head into law school. Both in and out of class the professors were available prepare me for my future as a law student, lawyer and as a Christian in the professional world. No where else do you find professionals so grounded on the word of God and so knowledgeable about the world you are about to enter.

How did your program at Biola prepare you for your career?
Dr. Waller and the rest of the pre-law professors provided me with the support, encouragement and foundation I needed to head into law school. Both in and out of class, the professors were available prepare me for my future as a law student, lawyer and as a Christian in the professional world. No where else do you find professionals so grounded on the word of God and so knowledgeable about the world you are about to enter.

What did you appreciate most about your time at Biola?
Never again in your field will you be surrounded by such an encouraging team of fellow believers. The staff and professors at Biola provide the support and advice that I needed to assist me in making big life decisions on my career.

How did Biola equip you to be a more faithful follower of Jesus Christ?
Biola gave me a wholistic perspective on following Jesus — following Jesus became more than following him on spiritual matters. Biola took every opportunity to show me how the word of God applies to every aspect of my life. Biola teaches its students how to impact the world for Jesus in every field.

What advice would you give to students considering your degree program?
Take advantage of the availability of the professors. They have valuable experience and perspectives that are ripe for picking if you show up and let them impart their wisdom.

Are there any achievements, awards or samples of your work that we can share on Biola’s website?
I'm a Deputy District Attorney serving in the Violent Crime Enterprise Unit prosecuting gangs in Stockton, California.
