I can’t go a day without … black tea. It used to be coffee, until I realized I was addicted to it.
If you were in my office … you’d marvel at how well organized it is.
When I was a newbie lawyer … I only wore gray and black suits; then I began to desperately miss color.
The lawyer I admire most … There are too many to name, but in my field, for the purposes of being succinct (and in no particular order): Frank Muoio, Manuel Gonzalez and Esther Omoloyin.
The qualities I most like in a lawyer … are honesty and forthrightness. I appreciate people I can trust, even when I am fighting with them.
My career high point (so far) … has been joining Goldberg Segalla. I could not have asked for a better firm to call home at this moment in my career, and I enjoy looking ahead to future successes here.
If I weren’t a lawyer … I’d be working for the United Nations, fighting to educate young women around the world.
My favorite Twitter feed is … I don’t have one. Except for email and LinkedIn, I am totally offline.
My fictional hero is … Wonder Woman.
My real-life heroes are … my family members.
The talent I wish I had … is singing angelically.
I get angry … when I’m hungry.
On my worst day … I remind myself that my problems are small compared to the daily struggles and indignities that countless others face.
My motto is … to be the most authentic version of myself every day.
The book I just don’t get is … The Old Man and the Sea.
I’m inspired by … goodness, in all of its forms.
