Meet Olivia - Westport Moms

How old are your kids and how long have you lived in Westport? I have lived in Westport for about three-and-a-half years. My daughter is two-and-a-half, and my son is due to arrive on Valentine’s Day (although hopefully a little sooner!).

How did you end up where you are now in terms of your job, or whatever passion project it is you might be doing? I went to law school right after graduating college, since I knew I always wanted to be a divorce lawyer. I applied for my current job while in law school, and I’ve been at my current firm – Ferro & Battey LLC – ever since (almost eight-and-a-half years).

What is the best show you have recently (binge) watched? AND/OR what is the last book you read? The last book I read was “Brooklyn” by Colm Toibin, and the last show I binged watched was “The Crown.”

What are two things still on your bucket list? Two things left on my bucket list are: 1. Ride in a hot air balloon and 2. Travel to India

What is your favorite podcast? Anything true crime.

What is one food you could not live without? Ice cream!

What is your greatest indulgence? Laying in bed on a Saturday morning watching TV and drinking coffee.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest? I would love to have Kate Middleton as a dinner guest. I am fascinated by the royal family, and Kate Middleton just seems so elegant but down-to-earth.

Are you a morning person, or a night owl? How does sleep fit into your life? I am, and have always been, a morning person. Like me, I think most moms wish they could get more sleep, but I try to get to sleep early every night.

What thing has surprised you most about being in the suburbs? While I have never lived in a big city, what has surprised me most about living in Westport is how friendly and outgoing everyone is.  Many of the people I come across are eager to get to know each other and make friends in the community.

What is the first thing you do when you walk in the door after a long day? The first thing I do after walking in the door after a long day (or any day) is to give my daughter a hug.
