How do you spend your weekends?
My weekends are spent enjoying time with my husband, Mike, and our children, Maddy, Logan, Conner, and Jon Paul. With four kids, there is always excitement in the house, so we never have to jet-set to Europe for an eventful weekend - we tend to strive for simplicity: family and friends, grilling out, normally a birthday party or two tossed in the mix, and Alabama football in the Fall.

Whom do you most respect?
My parents. They raised three children while each working 60 hour-weeks during my entire childhood, my Dad as an educator and my Mom as a nurse. From a professional standpoint, they instilled in me the work ethic that I have today. From a personal standpoint, I learned from them that there is absolutely nothing in this world that can substitute for the support system that is family, and family does not just include one’s “relatives.”

My favorite part of this job?
Is the fact that each day, my practice involves a variety of facets – counseling, negotiating, litigating, etc. – on behalf of my clients, all with differing needs and goals, such that every day is truly different than the one before.
