About Me

My motto: "Fortune favors the prepared."

Fun Fact: I have three adorable, small dogs... Lulu, Loki, and Luna.

I became an attorney because:  an advertisement on the law school's television said: "Intellectuals solve problems, but geniuses prevent them." I want to work with clients to proactively address issues before they arise.

Where I'd most like to live:  Mexico. It's a country with a rich and diverse culture. The architecture of its historical buildings, the culinary variations from state-to-state, and the laidback atmosphere of pueblo life captivate me.
