About me

“I like helping people. That’s what I think attracts a lot of people to plaintiff’s work. My parents are social workers, so I come from that background. I think knowing that you have people who are relying on you whose lives are impacted adversely, you’re really working to make their lives easier, and that’s what keeps you going.”
