A call to service

June 19, 2019

Brandy Parry, JD ’20, dreamed about serving her country since she was a little girl. At just 17, the Colorado native had the opportunity when she joined the U.S. Navy as a gunner’s mate following her high school graduation. Through her four years of service in Japan, she ultimately rose through the ranks to petty officer second class.

After her service, she wanted to serve her community in a different way.

“Quinnipiac Law offers numerous experiential courses and the opportunity to practice what you learn in the classroom as part of a tight-knit community,” said Parry, who also serves as the vice president of the Quinnipiac Military Law Society and co-director of the Society for Dispute Resolution. “Through my clinical experiences, I have been able to apply some of the client-counseling skills I have obtained through courses, such as Introduction to Representing Clients, as well student organizations, including the Society for Dispute Resolution.”

“The meaning of Veterans Day for me is almost undefinable. It is impossible to completely describe with words alone,” said Parry. “Veterans Day is about honoring all veterans who have served across this nation to preserve and protect our country.”
