HOW CHOSE FIELD: I have an affinity for giving advice (solicited or otherwise), a strong sense of fairness and justice, and I get satisfaction from helping others, so my husband suggested I become a lawyer.

KEYS TO SUCCESS: I am very practical and never lose sight of the client's need to run a business while complying with workplace laws. When you are ethical and bring value to your clients, the rest takes care of itself.

MOTIVATOR: When someone tells me I made a positive difference in their life, it motivates me, especially when I feel like putting up my feet and reading a good book.

I WISH I HAD KNOWN YEARS AGO: How wonderful and rewarding it would be to be my own boss.

BIGGEST INFLUENCE: My husband, Paul, who believed in me even when I didn't believe in myself. He encouraged me to go to college and then law school while working full time and raising two children.

GREATEST PASSION: Teaching; I love sharing knowledge with others.

LEADERSHIP TIP: Let your team know you trust them and that your door is always open. It's the difference between delegating and dumping.

ADVICE TO PASS ON: Take your obligations seriously, but don't take yourself too seriously. It's important to be able to laugh at yourself.

BEST ADVICE RECEIVED: If you don't believe in yourself, how can others?
