Women in business: Never stop learning- continue to learn new things and keep up to date on technology. For stay at home moms – which I was one for a time –  keep your hand in some part of the business environment- volunteering, working part time etc. , try to keep up to date on new technology so when they are ready to enter the workforce again with minimum loss in skills.

What inspired you to pursue a career in law/at Fiffik Law Group?

I honestly do not know but I have things from the age of 10 years that said when I grow up I want to be a lawyer. When I was older, my mother spoke of her job as a legal secretary and she always said she thought I had the personality to be an attorney.  I guess I argued or negotiated alot.  Also my dad had some legal issues with a property dispute that involved some parties with influence in a small county legal community.  It was the first time I saw how sometimes justice can be perverted by those in power and definitely drove me to want to not be that type of attorney.  


What's the most unusual or unexpected aspect of your job that people might not know about?

Not really unusual or unexpected but will say that I find it fascinating with the law that I learn something every single day.  


Can you share a success story or accomplishment that you are particularly proud of?

Being part of a firm whose attorneys' jobs are to provide access to an attorney and ultimately access to justice is something I am very proud of. 


What is a piece of advice would you give to other women aspiring to be in the legal field? 

If the job you have is due to the money you make, find a way to use the status as an attorney outside of that.  Be an influence or advocate for those in need.


If you could have dinner with any historical female figure, who would it be and why?

Florence Griffith Joyner, 1988 Olympian and World Record holder in the 100/200 meter dash. She was a force in the track world.  She had originality, style and was so dynamic of an athlete and person.

The amount of compassion needed to be an effective attorney.

 


Can you share a success story or accomplishment that you are particularly proud of?

Handling over 20,000 estate planning matters in the course of my career so far.

 

What is a piece of advice would you give to other women aspiring to be in the legal field?

Show up, be yourself, know your worth, be accountable, find ways to connect with clients & colleagues.

 

If you could have dinner with any historical female figure, who would it be and why?

Mother Teresa. I would like to learn more about her selfless nature that drove her to tirelessly assist the suffering and hear her thoughts on the ways I could have the most impact on those around me.
