WHAT INSPIRES ME ABOUT MY WORK
My mother was a union schoolteacher, so the importance of a strong and enforced contract is not an abstract idea to me. I always knew that I wanted to practice labor law to ensure that other children of union families could enjoy the same benefits.
AWAY FROM WORK
When not working, I enjoy playing the guitar and visiting the goats at Awbury Arboretum with my daughter.
