Those who know me well say that I’m:

  • Well-traveled
  • Compassionate
  • Entrepreneurial
  • A foodie

I chose to become an attorney because … I saw the comfort and relief an attorney provided to my grandparents when my grandmother could no longer take care of my grandfather in their home. I understood that the power of a profession, such as an attorney, can provide real solutions and can create a lasting impact on peoples’ lives.

I believe that… everyone is deserving of dignity and respect. Especially the elderly, the dying, those who carry a disabling ailment, and their caregivers.

I can… pack for a 10 day trip in my carry-on luggage!

My greatest accomplishment… leaving my comfort zone by moving to Arizona, becoming a lawyer, and building a firm that serves clients with integrity.

Quote me: “In talking about death we can live life more fully”

My next challenge… make it to Africa and Antarctica, so I’ll have traveled to all seven continents!

On my bookshelf: From Here to Eternity, Traveling the World to Find the Good Death by Caitlyn Dougherty.

Seven words that describe me: motivated, giving, enthusiastic, early riser, competitive, creative and humble (sarcastic) :)

One thing most people don’t know about me: I grew up in a small town in the Midwest (Galena, IL) and the county only had one stoplight at the time!

I volunteer with… Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center (SARRC).

When I’m not working… I’m on my Peloton (#EmmaRay), traveling the globe to see family, eat good food and experience new things, attending book club, or spending time with my wonderful friends and family in beautiful Arizona.
