States I've lived in
You've had the opportunity to move around and live in many different, exciting places! What were some of your favorites?
Juneau will always hold a special place in my heart because it’s where I met my husband. We love Roanoke because it reminds us of Juneau and has a great community. New Hampshire was the most beautiful place I’ve lived, and it’s where my eldest was born. I also treasure many, many weeks spent in Greece where my extended family lives, and more recently Oklahoma, where my husband was born and raised. I’ve never actually resided in either place, but they both give a strong feeling of home, even though they are far apart and have very different histories.
What inspired you to pursue a career in law?
I have always wanted to be a lawyer, but I questioned myself a lot. “Lawyer” is an easy answer to “What do you want to be when you grow up?” that pleases others and makes you seem focused. So I held off and taught for several years. Being a lawyer is not unlike teaching: learn, communicate, advocate. Right after having my son, I realized I wanted to persuade a different audience, and that a different platform would help me be more effective. I also felt very empowered by motherhood, it made me brave. So I applied to law school.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I try to learn how to do things myself. I can make my favorite breads from scratch, grow vegetables seasonally, and raise chickens for eggs. I am designing a rain garden that will capture the run-off from our house, shed and driveway and absorb into a depressed flower bed at the bottom of the hill. It’s an efficient use of resources that also adds beauty.
