|What is your favorite Coastal memory?
||Celebrating the end of the first year with my classmates at Lemon Bar.
|What is your proudest professional moment?
||Obtaining a stay from the First District Court of Appeal, which allowed my client to graduate from eighth grade. She was banned from attending all public schools in Duval County in a repeat violence injunction where only one act of violence had been proven. I was proud to see our legal community step in to fight for the rule of law including co-counsel Bryan Gowdy, Gray Thomas, Buddy Schulz, and David Utter.
|What advice do you have for someone considering law school?
||I wake up every day proud to be a lawyer, but not everyone does. If you don’t really want to practice law, I suggest putting those three years into gaining experience in whatever field you do want to end up in, whether that is business or politics. .
|What is on your bookshelf?
||I am currently reading Iberia, by James Michener.
|Who did you call when you found out you passed the bar?
||My husband and fellow alum, Randall Richardson. After that, I called my boss at that time, Judge Peter D. Webster. I could not wait until I got back from lunch to tell him.
