I'm an attorney and have run my own practice for about 5 years.
Although I practice the law and have had a good measure of success
at it, I don't like to let myself be defined by my occupation, and
I don't believe that my personality is that of a "typical"
attorney. Translation: I'm not boring or afraid to try new things,
and I rarely, if ever, talk about the law during my non-work hours.
I do, however, enjoy the challenges and benefits of running my own
business and love to discuss that aspect of my career.
I have been doing Crossfit since April 2011, and have found my new
passion. I work out 4-5 times a week and am always looking for the
next competition I can enter to measure my progress. I'm not afraid
of being lousy at something, just as long as I've tried my hardest
and I go back and train to be better the next time. I'm excited
that, at this stage in my life, I have something to look forward to
and improve upon about myself, my health, my strength, my body, my
overall outlook on life.
When I'm not running my practice or getting my butt kicked in
Crossfit, I like to play, sing and dance with my daughter and hear
what she has to say as she learns new words and experiences new
things. She really cracks me up most of the time and I'm so
grateful that she's in my life and that I have the opportunity to
help her to grow into the wonderful and beautiful spirit that she
is. Yes, I'm granola-y spiritual, as well, although definitely not
too crunchy! ;)
