Ms. Abikanile N. Mack-Williams – Chief Financial Officer

I am a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Economics.  In college I volunteered at Oak Hill, a juvenile detention center, and worked at Scottrade as an intern stockbroker.  I came to law school and pursued those same interests: criminal justice and securities.  I’ve worked as a legal intern at the Federal Defender’s Office in Baltimore and at the SEC.  Currently, I am a student attorney in Criminal Justice Clinic.  I would like to pursue a job in the financial sector upon graduation from law school because I want to learn more about business and investment.  My long-term goals are to get married, have children, open my own cosmetics boutique, and possibly start a cosmetics line.
