If you weren’t an attorney, what would you be?
If I wasn’t an attorney, I would be an interior designer or a wedding planner because I love connecting with clients and helping their vision come to life. Being a part of these special moments would make the job even more rewarding.
What’s your favorite way to spend your commuting time?
My favorite way to spend my commuting time is listening to a motivational podcast that fuels my mind with positive thoughts and beginning my day energized and ready to tackle any challenges. At the end of a long work day, listening to a podcast is grounding, reminding me that there is a lot to be grateful for.
What is a personal accomplishment you’d like to share from the past year
One of my biggest accomplishments has been receiving a CALI Excellence for the Future Award for my work as a Student Clinician at the University of Illinois College of Law’s Immigration Law Clinic. My immigration clients were the most important aspect of my law school journey and reminded me of the deep significance that pro bono work has in our clients’ lives.
What’s your favorite vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is a cabin in the mountains with a hot tub and no Wi-Fi!
