What is the one word people use to describe you?
That’s a great question, and I’m not sure that I know of just one word. I think people would describe me as compassionate, focused, a leader or driven, but probably most of all professional. One of the nicest compliments paid by a colleague is recently being described as “accessible.” She further explained that I always make myself available, that I’m easy to talk to and that I have the ability to make challenging information or issues easy to understand.
What is your favorite thing about being in the legal profession?
My ability to help people who otherwise would have no voice. My work allows me to fight for those who often have no one else to turn to.
