Lawyer

How do you maintain a work/life balance? ​
There are certain times of the day or week that you must take in order to keep yourself feeling and looking good.  So I do take one day of the month off completely.  Then I get busy with my job and life.  Set schedules and appointments are placed into my calendar for family and fun.

What websites do you visit every day? ​
Usually, it is the Weather.com and then a news site.

What are your top three favorite people/places/things to do in your city? 
Sully Plantation, Ellanor C. Lawrence Park, Chantilly Library

What is your goal for retirement?​
I would love to live on a yacht in the Miami harbor. I would be living my dream of assisting clients to find their next new home, business or investment either nationally or internationally.

Do you have any advice for women who’d like to start their own company? 
Yes. Believe in yourself.  You are your own first doubter, get over it, and accomplish your goals.
