PERSONALWhat would you be doing if you weren’t a lawyer? I would definitely be a librarian. I love books.
What is your favorite place in Chicago? Anywhere near the lake or river…during Summer.
What is the best vacation you’ve ever been on? My husband and I love to travel – but by far my favorite spots we’ve seen are Lisbon, Portugal and Edinburgh, Scotland.
What is your favorite restaurant? I love food, so this is very hard. In my old neighborhood in Chicago, Lakeview, it was probably Pho’s Thai and Southport Grocery. Now that I’m in Logan Square, I’m pretty much in food heaven.
