As a lawyer, I have come to learn that learning is an endless endeavor. There is always something to learn, whether it be from experience, my clients, or peers. My passion for knowledge is what will continue to drive me throughout my career. Every “problem” is a personal challenge to grow and expand my knowledge. Though this might seem daunting to some, it is exciting to me that I have found a niche, where I will never be stagnant and will continue to be challenged.
When I am not challenging myself though my cases, I am challenging myself on the race course. I am an avid runner, who trains year round. Running, while providing time to meditate, also provides me with a different kind of physical and mental challenge. Through my running, I have learned the importance of discipline, confidence and teamwork. My team and discipline helps to get me to the start line of all my races; however, it is my confidence that pulls me across that finish line. Passion allows you to push past both mental and physical exhaustion.
