Professional enjoyment: helping people

Your inspiration: probably my government class my senior year of high school. I was inspired by the history of our Founding Fathers and the writing of our U.S. Constitution.

Why bar association involvement: it keeps me connected with other lawyers and my community. Being able to have a forum to collaborate with colleagues not only allows you to develop professionally, but also transcends into lifelong friendships.

If not a lawyer: teacher

Fav hobbies: I like to spend time vacationing with my family, running and working on puzzles. Fav book or author and current reading: John Grisham. Fav vacation spot: anything Disney (theme park, resorts, cruises). Fav food or restaurant: pasta. Top of my bucket list: traveling Europe.
