She is also an accomplished writer. She started her blog, Chaton’s World, in 2006 and wrote about her life as a young lawyer searching for love. After becoming pregnant, she truly found her voice. She became more passionate about issues related to working women trying to achieve work/life balance. As a result, she transformed her blog to focus on work/life balance and pregnancy. Since becoming a mother, her wonderful daughter has provided her with substantial writing material! Recently, she started writing for Parent Society Magazine.
She has appeared on television numerous times and is an experienced national speaker. Her audiences have included a wide variety of demographics. She enjoys sharing her personal and professional life journey, highlighting relatable experiences of becoming an attorney, overcoming stereotypes, and being a young professional woman. She has also experienced a miracle. In 2009, she suffered a potentially crippling illness while training for a marathon. However, instead of losing her limbs she found a fuller life full of love and motherhood.
She has spoken before many organizations as a keynote speaker, presenter, panelist and served as a Mistress of Ceremonies.
