One word to describe you: Nerdy
Why this profession: I knew when I was twelve years old that I wanted to be an attorney. I saw a divorce attorney who was, unfortunately, abusing her role. I knew then that I wanted to practice law. I wanted to practice in a way that offers compassion to people who go through difficult times. From that moment forward, my focus and energy went into achieving that goal. Now, I am blessed to be living that dream. I know and appreciate what a gift that is. I have made incredible friends along the way, both in my colleagues and in my clients.
Favorite place to travel: I enjoy traveling very much, but I particularly love at this phase of life, being able to travel to my grandmother’s home where I spent so much of my childhood. It is comforting to go home.
