    I enjoy cooking, eating, and learning about food. Food tells such a rich story about who we are and that world around us. I also love exploring the trails around Richmond.

    I would love to see the Northern Lights.

  • If you had chosen a career other than law, what would you be doing?

    If I wasn't a lawyer, I would be a food writer and researcher.
