Hi there! I'm a Chicago transplant and lawyer who spends her days righting the wrongs of the corporate world. I'm smart, silly, sarcastic and maybe a touch Type A (in a lovable way). I actually love my job. What can I say? I get fired up about case law and I enjoy being in court. I paint, but apparently I need to point out that I'm not actually artsy. I *might* drag you to an open studio or two, but I'm more likely to be tailgating or watching a game in a bar (or hosting big happy hours). I ski every winter, I've gone bungee jumping (which I'd repeat, but not over concrete again), been rafting a few times (in the pouring rain - fail), kayaked with poisonous snakes (by mistake) and have done a complete 180 on skydiving. No way, no how - who is packing those parachutes, anyway? High college freshmen? Noooooo.
Did I mention my adorable lab mix? She's six. And yes, we did a highly embarrassing "Mom and Dog" photoshoot in the South End as a favor to a friend. I'm a good friend ... a really good friend. She's currently using my shoulder as a pillow. Win. I have no idea how people survive without dogs. They're the best. She would say the same about me, but you can't really trust her since I ply her with treats.
As for my guy, I go for a good old fashioned man's man ... hardworking, driven, loves sports, works out and is bewildered by skinny jeans for men. I want to feel like I could grab your arm in a dark alley and feel safer (but maybe we should stop wandering in dark alleys???).
