    I find it important to analyze issues and breakdown problems in order to get a clear picture of each situation. In addition to preparing opinions, drafting pleadings and advising colleagues in different stages of litigation, I also serve on the advising committee of a local business.

    I am particularly interested in encouraging entrepreneurship among women. Causes related to fostering self-confidence, student retention among young people as well as sustainable development are also very important to me.
