My name is Mallory Umbehagen and I have been given the pleasure of interning for Tangi Carter and her team. I am currently an undergraduate student at the University of Southern Mississippi, majoring in criminal justice and double minoring in broadcast journalism and legal studies. I am completely passionate about the law and have known I wanted to become a lawyer since I was 15 years old. There is something about getting to help those who cannot help themselves that draws me to this career, and this law office gives me the chance to do exactly that! On campus I am a member of Pi Beta Phi Sorority, President of the Criminal Justice Student Association, and a Student Ambassador for the Criminal Justice Department.
When I am not at work or school I usually spend my time hiking with my corgi Ellie. I have a wide range of hobbies like painting and crafting, collecting old records and cameras, obsessing over everything Disney, and feeding my ferocious travel bug.
I am also now lucky enough to announce that I will be attending Florida State University's College of Law in Tallahassee, Florida for the Fall of 2019.
Getting to intern at Tangi Carter Law Office is so much more than putting a job on my resume. Here, I am able to get a first-hand look into the world of law and grow my motivation, discipline, and dedication that will help me in future law school endeavors and ultimately my career. Tangi and her team truly care about the individuals they assist. I know I am going to have the opportunity to learn compassion and respect for those needing to acquire legal help during their time of hardship that I could not learn anywhere else.
