Why did you become an attorney?
As much as I admire attorneys who grew up dreaming of becoming a lawyer, I could not have had a more different journey. Thanks to my incredibly supportive family, I was the first person in my family to attend college, where I majored in biology and hoped to work in a research laboratory. During my biotechnology master’s program, which featured many laboratory classes, the class I gravitated toward most was focused on regulations relevant to the biotechnology industry. That was my first exposure to law, and over the next few years, the idea of becoming an attorney began to take shape.
What is the best part of your job?
The best part of my job is navigating and piecing together what can be a very complicated and overwhelming puzzle of statutes, regulations, case law, and guidance in response to a client’s practical issue. Taking the law from a conceptual-and often an ambiguous-place to a solution for our busy clients always feels like a worthwhile achievement.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Travel, whether to a location that is a 30-minute drive or a 12-hour flight away. Hand-in-hand with travel comes opening yourself up to learning about and experiencing other cultures. I feel very lucky to have had such experiences from a young age, which has instilled in me a lifelong appreciation for their power and importance.
