Why did you choose to work in Family Law?

I didn’t choose family law; however, when the opportunity came for me to work with Sterk Family Law Group, the uniqueness of the firm is what I chose. The firm’s holistic, team approach helps clients navigate challenging situations with empathy and understanding, which is something I never had heard of for a law practice.

What is your greatest fulfillment in working in family law?

My role as the Business Development and Marketing Manager does not have me working directly with the legal aspects of family law, but much like the firm’s unique approach, my role is also very unique. In addition to managing all the marketing, I do our community outreach and connection building. Creating connections with professional resources is key to ensuring that individuals receive the help they need. I enjoy building networks of support, fostering collaboration between organizations, and empowering individuals to have access to available resources effectively.

How do you get away from stress and separate your work from your home life?

As long as there is not some sort of weather disaster happening outside, I love being outdoors! Nature as a whole brings me peace and allows me to disconnect from work and clear my mind. Clouds and sunsets are two of my favorite things.

What is your favorite quote?

“If you can’t laugh at yourself, life’s gonna seem a whole lot longer than you like.” [Garden State]

What do you do in your spare time?

As I mentioned, I love being outdoors. I love to garden, do yard work, and have bonfires at home or while camping. I also love to cook – it allows me to be creative, and I also love to feed people. Anyone who has met me likely also knows/knows of my two dogs, Sadie and Tijo, so you will always find them close by whether we’re outdoors or in the kitchen; they especially love to help me cook.

What do you like about working at Sterk Family Law Group, P.C.?

What is your favorite holiday and why?

The 4th of July.

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

I would be a bird – they get to fly around, get the best views from above, and sing their own unique tunes.
