Today’s spotlight: Susan Dana-Kobey
Burch & Cracchiolo
Dana-Kobey is a family law attorney who handles all aspects of divorce and family law matters. She received her J.D from Western State University College of Law and her B.A. in international business from California State University at Fullerton. Dana-Kobey lived in Argentina as a child where she learned to speak fluent Spanish and Portuguese.
Lesson learned in 2020: “To slow down and look up . Strong leaders adapt to change and find innovative ways to get through challenges. If the pandemic has taught us anything is that we need to always nurture our ability to understand humanity and its ever evolving ways so that we can be better prepared to lead in the right direction when the road is dark. When we are too busy to look up we miss the opportunities that allow us to develop the skills needed to lead.”
Source of pride: “I continue to be motivated by knowing that as a family law attorney I can make a positive difference in someone’s life by helping them through some of the most trying and emotional times of their life. By being honest and forthright about realistic possible outcomes, I am setting the stage for them to move forward in an optimistic way.”
Surprising fact: “I lived abroad as a child and speak fluent Spanish and Portuguese.”
