Men’s Ministry – Camden Nunery
I have a bit more experience than most HLS students (that’s code for “I’m really old”). I worked as a social entrepreneur for several years before getting a masters in finance and transitioning into financial regulation. Worked for the CFTC (like the SEC, but regulates different markets).
Duke grad. Raised in Indianapolis. Lived in DC for 7 years before coming to HLS. Attend and love Church of the Cross (COTC). Looking forward to getting to know you!
Angel hails from Tampa, FL, and earned her B.A. in International Relations and Spanish from the University of Alabama in 2011. When she’s not consumed by the wonders of law school-cases, briefs, and such-you’ll probably find her whipping up a novel creation in the kitchen. She is a self-proclaimed “theme park junkie” whose primary goal is to seek out the local thrill-rides and amusement parks upon visiting a new city. She loves the Lord and looks to Him to guide every step of her path.

After college, Isaac volunteered with AmeriCorps and ran a self-help program for pro se litigants. Isaac spent his 1L summer with the Court of International Trade and Jones Day and is happy to chat about these experiences.
