Q: What drew you to Crary Huff?

As a young attorney, I have an entire firm of mentors who are willing to sit and listen and help in any way. On any given day, there’s a handful of people who are popping in to ask about a project or just check in. The mentorship at Crary Huff has been really helpful both personally and professionally.

Q: What was your first job?
A: From the time I could talk, I was down in my grandparents’ small family bakery helping out with anything I could manage. I worked the register, frosted cookies, and delivered wedding cakes. I would even go in at 4:30 in the morning sometimes to help Grandpa bake whatever he was making that day. It was a great place to grow up.
