WHAT INSPIRES ME ABOUT MY WORK
“My clients are what inspire me—whether it is a labor union working hard to represent and advocate for its members, or an individual employee who isn’t afraid to challenge unfairness in the workplace.”
AWAY FROM WORK
“Away from the office, I spend as much time with my husband and our two sons as possible!”
