What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

Getting named Citywealth Power Women of the year for North America was a big highlight for me.

How did you get into private client?

I always wanted to work with families and individuals and was lucky enough to be a summer associate at Katten and work with their private client department.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

Find and attend the best conferences with the highest quality speakers addressing the tax laws and planning issues in their respective jurisdictions. Invest in your education and professional network. Stay abreast of current events on a worldwide basis.

What is your favourite quote?

"Perhaps he knew, as I did not, that the Earth was made round so that we would not see too far down the road." Isak Dinesen.

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

This summer I have resumed horseback riding and taken up paddle-boarding.

When the restaurants reopen, where would you like to go?
