Because my mom is an attorney. She went to law school when I was in middle school, and I thought it was the greatest thing a person could do.
I like meeting clients from different walks of life and learning about their businesses, their families, and how we might be able to help them. I think I learn a lot from my clients.
I worked for Craige Jenkins for a little while in law school, and I was impressed with all of the attorneys and the focus on the clients.

Japan, 2005, with my husband to visit a law school classmate. It was really great to be in a culture that was so different from American culture.
I’m the chair of the Estate Planning and Fiduciary Law Section’s legislative committee right now. I get to work with a bunch of really smart lawyers who are trying to make North Carolina’s laws fairer and more efficient. It’s really a lot of fun.
