Key to Success: However boring it may sound, my key to success is staying organized. I am notorious for carrying around my handwritten to-do list on a beat-up legal pad.


Guilty Pleasure: Watching “the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” or “Vanderpump Rules” with a nice glass of Sauvingon Blanc.


High School Superlative: Most Likely to be President


Childhood Aspirations: When I was four years old, I wanted to be a paleontologist; however, becoming an attorney was always on the backburner because of my parents’ involvement in the political and legal fields.


First Job: I worked for the Stuart McMillian, a member of the Scottish Parliament, in Edinburgh, Scotland during college.


Best Advice: My mom recently shared this advice, “Help people, even when it is inconvenient, help people.” I believe this can be applicable in anyone’s career; however, it’s applicable especially in the legal field, and I try to keep that in mind everyday.


Biggest Influence Personally & Professionally: My mom is certainly my biggest influence, both personally and professionally. Because she was a judge my entire life, I was always interested in getting into the legal field. Now that I’m here, she is the best mentor, especially in conversations with her before I’m about to appear in court.
