What is the best part of your job?
I love the problem solving aspect of my job. Each case I work on is like a jigsaw puzzle. At first, the puzzle is chaotic and unorganized, and it may seem like the pieces will never come together. But with a little time and hard work, I am able to figure out how the pieces fit together and to find a solution to my client's legal problem.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I am a certified baton twirling judge with the United States Twirling Association. I spend my spare time judging baton twirling competitions, traveling, or spending time with my husband, Robert, and our dogs, Mia and Susie.
Who has inspired you in your career?
I am inspired by other strong, intelligent female attorneys including, among others, Chief Judge Karon Bowdre of the Northern District of Alabama. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to clerk for Judge Bowdre and to learn from her experience as judge, lawyer, wife, and mother.
