What is your role at The Settlement Alliance?

I am the general counsel for the company.  I initially handled human resources, but as we have grown over the last few years, my role has involved mostly dealing with legal issues or legal questions that come up in our business. 

What line of work were you in before joining TSA? 

I worked in-house for an oil and gas company.

What do you enjoy most about working at TSA? 

I enjoy working with our TSA team.  Scott has put together a very talented group of people from all over the country.  The group is incredibly efficient and works well together with the common goal of wanting to make sure we do what is best for our clients and our staff. 

What is your favorite place to be? 

My favorite place to be is home with my husband John and my yellow lab Dolly.  We are huge fans of most sports.  Anytime that we can pile up at home and watch a game together is a good place to be. 

What are you passionate about? 

I am passionate about running.  I feel like it is acceptable to be obsessed about something that is so healthy.  I run most days even if it is for a short run.  I also make sure to plot out trails whenever I travel.  One of my favorite runs is a half-marathon I have competed in three times along the Stanley Park seawall in Vancouver, Canada.  I plan to run that race many more times.  One of my favorite running locations in the world is in the Tuileries Garden Park in Paris, France where you can run through the gardens with the backdrop of the Louvre in sight.  Some of my best memories from trips have involved great runs in great places.      

Who is your personal hero? 

My grandmother.  She was amazing.  She had four children and also raised me and my sister.  She only had a 7th grade education but was very intelligent and incredibly generous and kind.  We lost her when I was 18 years old, but she was everything good in life wrapped in one wonderful person and a great example for my family. 

What is your personal motto? 

“In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.”  (Thomas Jefferson)
