  • Just another female lawyer who is also juggling the job of being a mother! 

I am raising my school age daughter and two sons--a precocious preschooler and an incredible infant with the man I love in Pittsburgh.  I am a lawyer, a public speaker, a runner, and a writer. I started this blog because I like to write, and I thought that it was time to share my writing with others. Initially, I was nervous that I wouldn't find an audience, but I have. And that inspires me to write more!

Originally from Rochester, NY, I am one young professional Pittsburgh successfully roped in. I came here more than seven years ago to accept a position as an attorney with a large organization believing that I would only stay a few years. However, I fell in love and have made Pittsburgh my home.  Now, Pittsburgh is a part of me and I have become a part of this city. In addition to practicing law, mothering and blogging, I am an adjunct professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

Not everything I do is related to the law! I have tried a lot of things.  I was a cheerleader in high school and retain that enthusiasm for life.  I have worked on a skeet shooting range and been an aerobics instructor.  Before practicing law I had a career in sales and marketing.  I have sold candy for M&M/Mars and ran successful campaigns for the Dial Corporation.  At one point, I even tried out for "The Apprentice". Through that process I had an audience with the current president of The United States of America, Donald Trump. Now, that seems surreal...

Like many moms out there, I wear a lot of hats...


When I’m not practicing law, I try to give back to the community in as many ways as possible. I recently completed a term as Vice President of a local Foundation and I am a member of the Women’s Leadership Circle of United Way. I have also mentored several students bound for college. Come election time, you can always find me volunteering to protect the rights of voters seeking to participate in the political process. I even managed to get promoted twice at my "real job" after becoming a mom!

Sometimes my life is a bit overwhelming, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Writing this blog is often my “Me Time.” I share what is going on in Chaton’s World.   On this blog I share my views, from politics to motherhood. It helps me process everything going on in my life. I hope that my experiences and opinions help you to make sense of your world.

I also hope that this blog helps you understand that things get a little crazy for everyone. However, never forget that the best is truly yet to come.
