My colleagues would be surprised to know that … I’m Appalachian—born in Salisbury, North Carolina.
When I was a newbie lawyer I … bought a fancy, monogrammed padfolio and never used it.
The lawyer I most admire is … RBG. She encouraged women to know their worth and make their own path.
The quality I most like in a lawyer is … honesty.
If you were in my office, you’d … ask questions about my weird chairs. Almost every person touches the fluffy one.
My pre-trial routine is … read the file. Then read it again.
My career high point (so far) has been … creating a successful business.
I almost quit the law because … people are mean. Litigation is adversarial. A lot of people discount me because I am female.
My favorite Twitter feed is … @BudKennedy for local news; @sarahcpr for funnies.
On weekends I … hang out with my kids, go outdoors, relax.
The most fascinating person I ever met is … my husband. I could not do what I do without him.
I get angry when … people are treated unequally.
