5. Empathy

My favorite is harmony- I think it resonates with me most. I am always trying to make everyone happy and keep the peace.

How do you like to give back to the community?

My husband and I foster dogs through Midwest Boston Terrier Rescue. We take in abused or abandoned dogs, help train and care for them until they find their forever home.

Accomplishment you’re proud of?

Something I am very proud of is uprooting my life and moving to a new state. Ever since I was little, I wanted to travel and explore and live somewhere new. After getting married in 2019, I finally convinced my husband to leave our jobs, family, friends, everything we were familiar with and start over. After much deliberation, we decided on Grand Rapids, MI.

It was one of the hardest things we have ever done, but it was also the best decision we ever made! We LOVE Michigan and the life we have built up here.

Tell us about your life outside of work (family/pets/sports/activities/interests/hobbies)

My husband and I enjoy traveling, fishing, canoeing, reading, watching movies and sports, and going to concerts in the summertime. We have two dogs- a Pug/Boston Terrier mix named Motley and a Jack Russell Terrier mix named Joey.

What is your favorite part of working at the firm?

I love everything about working here! The atmosphere, the people, events, HN has really made for an enjoyable and uplifting working environment. I’m lucky to be a part of such a great company!
