What fictional character do you identify most with?

Kim Possible - she’s a good problem solver, survives challenging and dangerous missions and maintains grace under fire.

What surprised you most about Davies during the interview process?

I felt so comfortable. It really felt as though the firm was trying to get to know me, beyond the four corners of my resume. I mean, my interviewers even laughed at my awful jokes. Not only is Davies an incredible law firm, but the people are incredible too.

Whom do you most admire?

My mother, whom I look up to immensely. Professionally, she demonstrated to me from a young age that raising a family and having a successful career are not mutually exclusive. Personally, she taught me the importance of being confident but also about maintaining one's humility and a good sense of humour along the way.
