What was the best business advice you ever received?

When making business decisions, go with my gut and once it's made go with that 100 percent. If it doesn't work out the way you want, don't regret it but learn from it.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

I would be a party planner. Everybody loves a good party, but I love the anticipation and the build up of a good party. I like everything that goes into a great party.

What's the biggest risk you have ever taken in your career?

When I decided to leave my own practice and join a large law firm, but it was a very good decision.

If you could travel the world where would you start?

I would start in Africa for a photo safari. My late father traveled the world and Africa was always one place he wanted to go but never made it there before he passed. In his honor, I would start there.
