Mara was a Progressive Dental 2004 scholarship recipient.

Mara graduated from American University summa cum laude in Political Science and Communication, Legal Institutions, Economics, and Government. Mara went on to graduation from the Fordham University School of Law magna cum laude, where she received many Honors and Awards.

Since 2008, Mara has had the pleasure of working or interning with different Districts and Courts in both New York and Philadelphia. Hoping to return to New York, Mara looks forward to working in the litigation field and hopes to gain courtroom experience.

Mara credits her interest in the legal field to her High School American History teacher and spends her free time exploring the city she is working in, experiencing the local restaurants, museums, and cultural sites.

We are proud of you Mara!
