I chose the legal field: I wanted to help people in their time of need. I wanted to be that person that stood up for the rights of others.  

I most enjoy: I enjoy helping and working with our clients and helping them through difficult times. I also enjoy the atmosphere that our firm has. 

Professional accomplishment: I think my biggest professional accomplishment has been the ability to help others, and working my way up from an entry level position to management.  

My first job: Working for an insurance company. I believe this is the reason that I decided to work for our clients rather than against them. It hurt me to have to tell someone that we were not going to cover their injuries. 

In my free time: In my spare time, I am on the board of a youth football team. It helps me to give back to the community. I also like relaxing and spending time with my family. 

Favorite get-away: Hawaii and going on cruises. 

You don’t know: Most people do not know that I hate speaking in public and that I am an introvert.
