As a female attorney in a male dominated industry and a loving mother of two sons who were both little miracles, I’m proud to say I’ve found tremendous reward in both roles. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if not for my clients who put their trust in me and my children who tell me I’m the best mother ever. I don’t compare the two, because for me, they’re both essential parts of my well-being. I’ve been fortunate to experience a career and family and be surrounded by amazing people from all different cultures and walks of life.
I believe everyone has a purpose, a story to tell, and a legacy to leave behind. I’ve always stayed my course even when things got tough. I’ve taught my boys since they were old enough to speak, that no matter how difficult or impossible a situation may seem, there is always a solution…perhaps not the perfect solution, but always some way to make things a little better. So, never throw in the towel… never let fear drive decisions… and never let your emotions get the best of you. I feel this advice is more relevant today than ever, not only with football players suffering from brain trauma and bodily injury, but with individuals, men and women trying to secure their path in life and young people trying to find their way.
