Bree Vculek is a first-year law student at George Washington University in D.C. Although she will be a lawyer soon enough, Bree is the first non-lawyer who I have featured on the podcast. I thought it was important to share a student’s perspective because things evolve, and we as lawyers are hiring these students. Plus, I have a lot of listeners who are students or people considering going to law school, so I thought Bree’s perspective could bring some comfort to their circumstances. Of all places, Bree and I met through Instagram. She and I have followed each other for a while and I’ve always admired how she shares her “day in the life” journey through law school and working full time through a positive lens. Bree grew up on a farm in North Dakota, where her parents (entrepreneurs) showed her what it was like to run a business. She went to a small private school for undergrad where she studied biology and chemistry. She later obtained her Master’s Degree in Biotechnology from Texas A&M. Working for a Senator, helping shape legislative policy, Bree ventured to D.C. Now, with hopes that she will be an IP lawyer, Bree goes to GW in the evenings and works for a global, biomedical company during the day. In her role, she supports labs in Germany and calls on her science background to serve clients. She was incredibly kind and I think there is a lot we can all learn from her vision, work ethic, and drive.
