Meet Your Resident Fellow
Five Resident Fellows work hard to make your stay in Gewirz safe, comfortable, and enjoyable. RF's act as liasons between administration and students, helping to enforce administrative policies and conveying student concerns to administrators. RF's also work to develop a supportive community at Gewirz by coordinating social events and group activities. At least one RF is always on call in case of an emergency. Below are a list of your RFs for the 2014-2015 academic year.
Sarah Wladecki- Floors 2 & 3 Apt. 304
Sarah is a 3L and will be the RF for the second and third floors. She went to Notre Dame for undergrad and then worked for five years in the front office of a professional basketball team, the NBA Development League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants. She is from Fort Wayne, Indiana and plans to return there after graduation.She likes to jog on the Mall, play soccer, and explore DC. She plans to bake a lot of sweets for Gewirz residents this year, so stop by room 304 any time you need a treat!
Anthony Palmer - Floors 4 & 5 Apt. 504
Anthony was born in Philadelphia, PA, and raised in a suburb outside the city. Anthony is a proud graduate of Gettysburg College, where he majored in Political Science and spent an inordinate amount of time in the cafeteria enjoying his unlimited meal plan.

During his Washington Semester, Anthony interned for NBC's The Chris Matthews Show.
Anthony is 2L at Georgetown. In addition to being a Resident Fellow, he is a member of the Barristers' Council Appellate Advocacy Division.

Anthony is passionate about criminal law, veterans' issues, and First Amendment/free press law. In his free time, he enjoys eating out, playing the drums, running around the National Mall, and reading anything but a casebook.
Congratulations, and welcome to Georgetown!
Patricia Kim - Floors 6 & 7 Apt. 704
Patricia is from Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love (and yes, Pat's is really better than Geno's!). She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame (Go Irish!) and then moved to New York City to get a Master's from Columbia in Social Work. Patricia's work as a social worker in Bronx Family Court for the Legal Aid Society's Juvenile Rights Practice led her to apply to law school, and it was the one of the best decisions she's ever made! Prior to transferring to Georgetown, Patricia was a member of the Academic Enrichment Program, PALS, and the Minority Mentorship Program at Fordham University School of Law. Patricia interned for Judge Jed S. Rakoff in the Southern District of New York last summer before moving to DC to come to GULC, and then this summer, moved back from DC to NYC to be a Summer Associate at Patterson Belknap Webb & Tyler. This upcoming school year, Patricia looks forward to being a Resident Fellow for the best law school residence hall in the country, a Senior Writing Fellow, a TA for Tanina Rostain's Access to Justice Practicum, and a participant in the Institute for Public Representation Clinic. For fun, Patricia enjoys travelling, wine tasting, and riding ferries. Welcome to Georgetown!
