Professional enjoyment: I have really come to enjoy and appreciate my many colleagues and added experience has given me the confidence and patience to display humility and acceptance that did not come as easy earlier in my career. Although it can initially be difficult to move beyond our necessary professional veneers, I have gotten to know incredibly interesting people with unexpected talents and pursuits developed from varied backgrounds and experiences.

Your inspiration: For reasons not truly understood by me, a seed germinated within me early on that I reaffirmed at various stages of my life and that I continue to reaffirm through today. Of course, much of the credit for the early seed lies with my Uncle Ken Yahne, who practiced with Lincoln National Life for many years and who remains someone I admire.

Why bar association involvement: Bar associations provide an invaluable experience to collaboratively interact with colleagues, who truly care about bettering our profession. As a gardener and one who appreciates taking care of what has been given, I have always ascribed to the belief that I have an obligation to lend my contribution to make this world a little better than I found it and feel that way about our shared profession. Just this past year my life has been so enriched by my colleagues on the Board of Governors.

If not a lawyer: I have not been truly tested since I committed to becoming a lawyer long ago, but I think that I would like to teach History at the high school level. Also, my life's experiences and passion for the written word have given me a book that is bursting to be written once time will better permit.

Fav hobbies: My number one pursuit is whatever my two boys are pursuing. In the past few years, I have coached basketball and baseball for each, and will happily support any activity that compels them. Also, I very much enjoy gardening and the peace it brings.

Fav book or author and current reading: When I first considered reading "The Fourth Turning" in 1998 by William Strauss and Neil Howe, I recall being attracted by the prophecy component of the book. After reading the book, however, I gained an entirely different understanding of history based on the authors’ generational analysis of history. No longer did historical events and figures randomly appear in a mishmash of unrecallable dates. After reading "The Fourth Turning," history became far more interesting to me because I felt as though I could better understand why people acted the way they did. Once I understood the repeating cycles of history, I was much better able to contextualize and understand current and historical events.

Fav vacation spot: Anywhere I've vacationed quickly becomes my favorite vacation spot so I have no reason to expect anything different in the future. I have many destinations in mind, including many throughout the U.S. to visit with family that I intend to pursue in the coming year.

Fav food or restaurant: Mostly, I love anything I can pull together from my garden, particularly the simple and healthy. Also, after being infused with Turkish culture and cuisine, I have to rank Manti (a small handmade dumpling filled with meat and topped with yogurt and garlic, red pepper powder and topped with ground sumac and dried mint) near the top of my list.

Top of my bucket list: My "bucket list" is whatever the universe brings in the current moment because each moment is a treasure to be experienced fully and completely
