Sydney concentrates her practice in health law, while maintaining a passion for the law generally. Her practice approach is to establish trust, which empowers her to assist clients through difficult scenarios and to provide the relief or results the clients seek. Sydney welcomes challenging client questions and issues with open arms, as legal research is one of her best skills. To facilitate her practice, she makes it a point to remain up-to-date with the ever-evolving health care laws and regulations so she can share this information with her clients.

In her spare time, Sydney loves to read. One of her favorite authors is Jodi Picoult. She also enjoys the fall, primarily because she loves watching the National Football League.

During law school, Sydney gained practical experience in the Federal Litigation and Appeals Clinic. Through the clinic, she successfully assisted a Ghanaian immigrant with his application for Asylum. Additionally, Sydney argued and won an appeal before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.

Sydney served as an Associate Editor for the Drexel Law Review.
