    Briefly describe your daily job duties.
    Daily job duties include helping people who are disadvantaged due to mental health challenges, specifically eating disorders. As a trial lawyer, I help them seek justice, health care, and support in a loving and caring environment. As a father whose daughter was taken from him by anorexia, I know the pain caused by the loss of a loved one, and fight daily for the mental health of others.

    As a person who stutters, share the most challenging part of your job.
    During trial I explain to the jury, “You may have noticed that I stutter. If that would be a problem for you to see my client objectively, let me know and we can talk to the judge about this”.

    What are your long-term career aspirations?
    Continuing to help others with their challenges!

    Did you self-disclose your stuttering during the job hiring process?
    As someone who is self-employed, the hiring process is not exactly applicable. However, I am very upfront talking with clients, new friends, and acquaintances about this.

    What is your proudest moment at your current company?
    Helping others to recover from eating disorders.

    What’s your best advice for people who stutter just entering the workplace and for those in a career striving to achieve greater success?
    Be resilient!
