People describe me as social and outgoing. I am intense, but I don't take myself too seriously. I'm a news junkie--especially political news, and I love a good debate. I also love being outdoors, playing sports, bike riding with my kids, or just walking my dogs in the neighborhood or at the dog park. I enjoy watching sports (especially my beloved Duke Blue Devil basketball team and the always disappointing KC Royals), and have been a distance runner for some time. I enjoy my rec league softball team, but I can't hit to save my life! I am an attorney and an owner of a small public interest law firm. I am the proud parent of two wonderful elementary school aged kids, and I treasure the experience of being their mom (even when they are fighting!).
