She is also the founder of Hello Divorce, an online platform that provides free and subscription-based resources and flat-fee legal services for people seeking a divorce.
What apps or tools are essential to your daily workflow?
What does your workspace look like?
Two computers (I shuffle from my PC for law firm work and my Mac for Hello Divorce) and a large screen, my kids’ art, post-its with quotes that are currently resonating with me, 3-4 lip glosses at any given time, and a Lacroix (grapefruit).
How do you keep track of your calendars and deadlines?
We use Clio for the firm and Asana for our start up (Hello Divorce), and I’m not going to lie—I’ve had the same case management assistant for 12 years who also manages my life.
What is your coffee service setup?
(Other beverages are fine, of course, but we think you should really be serving coffee!)
This is embarrassing. Especially since my husband owns a beverage company. Keurig coffee. Lots of flavors, lots of creamers. Clearly, we aren’t purists and have no taste. For office meetings, we bring in Peet’s Coffee.
What is one thing that you listen to, read, or watch that everyone should?
Suits (I try to incorporate one Harvey Specter-ism each day).
What is your favorite local place to network or work solo?
My teal couch at the office. Even though I’m not tied to the office, I love to collaborate, mentor and be present with our team.
What are three things you do without fail every day?
Meditate for five minutes, trust my instincts, delegate tons of stuff
