Favorite music
(musical about Alexander Hamilton)

37; born in Bronx, N.Y.; bachelor’s from Duke University and law degree from Wake Forest University; married to husband, Brittain, with daughter, Nia, and son, Mateo.
Why she chose to specialize in health care law
I got a taste of transactional health care law during one of my summer internships, and I have been hooked ever since. It’s the perfect blend of administrative law, health care policy, medicine and business. Every day, I get to figure out how to make all of these pieces fit perfectly into a puzzle that delivers health care services. It’s a fun, intellectually stimulating and rewarding practice area.
What she’d be if not a lawyer
An international economic development policy adviser. I would be traveling the world developing and implementing policies geared toward economic development in developing nations.
Best advice received
See and accept people for who they are, not who you want them to be.
Favorite place
Turks and Caicos. It’s beautiful, serene and peaceful. My husband and I honeymooned there so it holds a special place in my heart. We can’t wait to vacation there with our kids and make new memories in this beautiful place.
Favorite book
The Awakening by Kate Chopin. I first read this book when I was in high school, and it was seminal in forming my thinking about a woman’s place in society.
Favorite movie
The original The In-Laws. I love Alan Arkin and Peter Falk, and this movie makes me belly laugh each time I watch it. I also received a copy of this movie as a Christmas present from my in-laws for my first Christmas as their daughter-in-law.
Reading, running and cooking.
