Five Things You Didn't Know About Me


Both Mary Whisner (Trial Ad Notes) and Bonnie Shucha (WisBlawg) tagged me for the "5 Things You Didn't Know about Me" meme a few days ago, but I waited until today, so I could include the last thing I reveal below. See Mary's explanation of this meme thing.

  1. I practiced law for 13 years before enrolling in the UW Law Librarianship program.
  2. I love my work and frequently spend days off and vacations working on projects I don't have time to do when I am at work.
  3. I have started to write a column for Law Library Journal on "Technology for Everyone." My first column will appear in the next issue, due out early next year, and I have almost finished the second installment.
  4. My dog Dakota died this fall. We were devastated, and Candy hated to stay home alone after that. So we adopted Dooley. Dooley will be an SIU Law Dog of the Week sometime in January.
  5. The first time Dooley visited the vet, we discovered that he had heartworm disease. He started treatment for it a little over a month ago, and today his post-treatment heartworm test was negative.

I tag James Duggan and Frank Houdek, both of Law Dawg Blawg, Rob Truman, BoleyBlogs!, Matt Steinke, Moritz Legal Information Blog, and Little Sheba the Hug Pug, if they want to participate.

Dooley looks adorable! I hope he's OK.

I didn't know that you practiced for 13 years. Faculty members with real-world experience are valuable assets to any law school.
