What do you love most about living and working in the Hudson Valley region?
I grew up here, and my parents and siblings still live here. Also, some of my oldest friends (since nursery school) live close by, so I have a lot of opportunities to see family and friends. I also enjoy the rural atmosphere of the Hudson Valley. I spent over a decade living and practicing law in the metropolitan area, so the lack of congestion here is refreshing.
The Hudson Valley also offers lots of opportunities for outdoor activities, from skiing in the winter to fishing and hiking in the summer.
How did you decide to pursue a career in law?
I developed an interest at a young age. I took a class in high school that piqued my interest in law, and from that point forward, I became interested in pursuing a career in this field. In addition, while I was in college, I took several classes in business law. The professor was great, and those classes certainly furthered my interest in pursuing a legal career. I’ve also always enjoyed not only researching the law itself, but also researching and investigating the facts and background of the issues involving any legal dispute.
What do you like most about your job at FKC&S?
I enjoy the people at FKC&S and the challenges that the work presents. There are some really great, smart and hardworking attorneys and staff at the firm and every day presents an opportunity to learn something new from one of my colleagues.
Who inspires you most and why?
My family inspires me. I’ve been blessed to have two wonderful parents who have always inspired me to be as good as they are. I’m also blessed to have an amazing fiancé. We have five girls together and they inspire me to work hard every day.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I enjoy much of the outdoor life that the Hudson Valley has to offer. When the weather is nice, I like hopping on my bike and going for a long ride, hiking or working around the house. In the winter months, I enjoy skiing with the family. I also love spending time with family and friends.
What’s your go-to dish when you have to make dinner?
Either hamburgers or chicken wings – very simple, but good.
