How long have you been at ND Law? Almost seven years (yikes)
What did you do before you worked at the Law School? Before NDLS, I worked with a local criminal defense attorney for several years. Before South Bend, I lived in Chicago where I worked for an immigration attorney and at a big global ad agency.
Family: Awesome daughter, Sophia (11)
Fill in the blank, if you really knew me you’d know that: I love to be creative in not-so-ordinary ways.
Who would you like to swap places with for a day? I would love to be in my daughter’s shoes for a day so I could get inside her lovely mind. It would help me be a better mother!
What characteristics do you most admire in people? Honesty and genuineness. Be yourself. And tell the truth. It’s really not that hard.
What is something no one knows about you or what is your claim to fame? I sang the National Anthem with my college a cappella group at a Boston Red Sox game. I also used to be a radio DJ and was a birthday party entertainer for little kids when I was in junior high!
What super power would you like to have? I’d love to be able to fly! I could travel anywhere and be able to see the world from a wonderful perspective.
If you could splurge on one most have item what would it be? A private airplane so I could go wherever I wanted whenever I wanted. Oh, and a pilot’s license to go with it!

Thank you, Ali! We will randomly be asking colleagues to participate throughout the year, but we would really like for volunteers as well. If you would like to be featured send us an email here. We hope you will join in!
