Questions and Answers

I want to understand how and why you ended up here working at Buchanan Firm. What led you to this job? What were you doing before you came here? What attracted you to work for the Buchanan team?

After marrying my husband in 2013, we decided to return home to Michigan after 6 years in greater Chicagoland, honing our career skills while the Michigan job market recovered. When I started my job search, I intended to take it slow finding a great job over several months. I wanted the right fit. I happened to see a Buchanan Firm ad for a paralegal opening in my first search. The ad description immediately attracted me to the firm “looks forward to going to work in the morning, wants to work hard as a specialist with an elite team…” Who wouldn’t want those things? After a lengthy interview on a Saturday morning with the Buchanan Team, I knew Buchanan Firm was the perfect place for me. I truly enjoy coming to work every morning and love working with an elite team who are now more than co-workers, they are family.

What would you say most motivates you to do what you do?

What are you most excited or passionate about? Learning new things and helping people. Each day I am challenged and I enjoy problem-solving and continually expanding my knowledge. I enjoy helping others and making personal connections. These connections motivate me to be the best (fighting for those who have been wrongly injured).

What are you happiest doing, when you are not working?

Traveling with my husband, spending time with my friends, and snuggling with my dog-daughter, Leia.

Where’s your favorite place in the world?

The upper peninsula of Michigan. It is a unique, hidden gem of unspoiled forests, waterfalls, and wonderful wilderness.

What are your best skills that you bring to your job? What are you passionate about?

I connect with people. I am the resident Buchanan Firm “yes-man,” I will do anything asked of me. I am passionate about helping others and love the titanium relationships with my co-workers and clients.
