Why did you select your profession?

I loved (and still love) a good TV legal drama! I began my career wanting to be in court every day advocating for clients. I did just that for the first eight years of my legal career.

Where do you see yourself professionally in 10 years?

Changing the course of a veteran’s life, one veteran at a time.

What’s the best career advice you’ve ever been given?

Don’t lose yourself.

What is your favorite Rhode Island escape or hobby?

Riding on the back of our Harley through Bristol.

How do you keep a work‐life balance?

Every day when I look at my two girls, I am reminded how much I want and need to spend time with them. That’s all it takes.

What one thing in your professional life would you like a do‐over on?

My undergraduate academics. … I would change my class selections and challenge myself with more advanced studies. •
