Well, being a mother helps me understand how important it is to be able to take care of my family. I handle personal injury claims—mostly auto accidents, some premises liability. But I primarily handle personal injury.
I ultimately decided to practice law. I was actually torn between two professions, the medical profession or the legal profession. I enjoyed competitive debate in college, so the law kind of had that on its side. And now that I practice in the area of personal injury, I’m able to kind of combine my interest in health and the medical field with the practice of law, handling personal injury claims.
I’m very ambitious, very high-energy. I really, really enjoy the complex issues that often surround a personal injury claim. But also, I enjoy human interaction—really getting to know my clients on a personal level and understand in full depth how an auto accident or how their injury has affected their lives. And so, I enjoy being that medium. Counsel them through the process, let them know what to expect, and just really be there for them because it’s a difficult time. Not many people have been through this. And so, they have a lot of questions, there’s a lot of anxiety. You’re dealing with medical bills. A lot of the times, you’re out of work. It impacts your family, your ability to care for your family.
And so, I really enjoy just kind of being that voice to someone who’s been injured, to let them know, “Look, I have your back. You’re not in this alone. I’m going to take care of it. This is what I’m doing for you.” And so, at the end of the day, I get to go home knowing that I take care of people, and that’s just something that keeps me going every single day.
