If you weren’t an attorney, what would you be?
An entrepreneur. I love the idea of building something from the ground up.
What was your first pet?
A labradoodle, Lou, who became part of our family last year. I have quickly transformed into the stereotypical dog mom. It is hard to believe I wasn’t even a dog person before meeting her!
What’s your favorite vacation spot?
The Greek Islands. My husband and I went on our honeymoon and it will always be one of the most special places for me.
