What is your background and training in the legal field?
I worked in a law firm before coming to work for James Bartimus PC (now known as Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader) – but Jim has taught me everything, or I learned by doing it on the job. In those early days it was Jim and I—we did everything together.
What brings you joy?
This new day brings me joy. A rainy morning, finishing a painting, working on quilts, talking to my grandson via FaceTime and a job well done all bring me joy, too.
Is there a case that has made an impact on you personally?
Every case teaches us something —if we will listen—whether it’s a life lesson or a reminder to have a constant sense of gratitude.
