Do you have any hobbies?

I love basketball (both watching and playing). I was the president of the Law School Basketball Association. I set up scrimmages against our professors, all the students would come watch, it was great.

What is an unusual skill or talent you have?

I love to cook, always looking at creative ways to get my kids (and husband) to eat veggies. I will hide them in anything from smoothies to sauces to brownies.

What is your favorite country to visit?

This is a tough question! I’ll break it down this way. Most unique country is Tibet. Most incredible people are from India, and Philippines. I would love to go back to Italy.

What made you want to be a lawyer?

My parents are kind of hippies, after the tsunami in 2004 they quit their jobs and moved to Thailand to do relief work. While there, they linked up with an organization that helped asylum seekers gain refugee status. I spent the summer in Bangkok with them writing appeals for these individuals. I worked alongside a team of international lawyers. I saw how effective their writing and knowledge was. The seed was planted, and I knew I wanted to be a lawyer after that.

Most memorable case?

I represented Dad in a custody matter and Mom tried fleeing the country with child. What started as a modification of custody turned in to an international abduction case. The FBI got involved. When Mom and child landed in Israel they were returned stateside. It was incredible to see the law and agencies working together to make this all happen.
