Up Close & Personal

  • Do you have children? Tell us about them.

    I have a one year old daughter who I love watching learn and grow every day. She keeps me very busy and I love spending time with her, as much as I can.

  • What do you do for fun?

    When the weather is nice, I do my best to be outside. Otherwise, I spend a lot of time with family and keep up a few hobbies on the side, such as quilting.

  • If you could take a 6 month sabbatical, what would you do?

    I would travel. I enjoy experiencing other cultures, languages and traditions. The list of places I want to visit before I die grows regularly; so I would take the chance to knock a few of them off the list.

  • What is your favorite vacation destination?

    Sicily. My grandparents came to the U.S. in the 1950’s from Sicily. We still have family in the small town they came from and it is a beautiful place to vacation.

  • Most prized possession?

    One item would be a set of letters I have from my grandmother. She wrote to me every week when I was in college and law school, from out of state, and I am so thankful to have those and the memories they represent.

  • If I had not gone to law school, I would have become….

    Almost certainly a teacher. I started college with the intention to be a music or history teacher, before I changed course.

  • If I left the practice of law today, I would become…

    Probably a mom. I love working as a lawyer; but if I left the practice, I would have no problem being a mom full time.

  • What was your very first job?

    My first job in high school was as a piano teacher. I taught beginning piano students out of my parent’s home one night a week.

  • Favorite thing about living in Wisconsin?

    I appreciate being close to family and taking advantage of both the easy access to Milwaukee with its events and activities
