Just finished a great week of family vacation, largely centered around time with family and friends on a handful of our local lake treasures.

Often times, we don’t realize how lucky we are to have such close proximity to the Finger Lakes and Great Lakes – true National Treasures!

Being able to take advantage of the work-life balance of a career at MMB is something very special to my family.

Now, on to Bills Training camp!!

Cathy Blood - Rochester Office

It all started about 3 summers ago.  My husband, after hearing about our son kayaking, decided he needed a kayak too.  I was so annoyed because I felt it would cut into the time we normally spend biking together along the Erie Canal.  I was right . . .  as I usually am.  (Aren’t all wives?!)  It has definitely put a dent in our biking activities, because I am now addicted to kayaking.  As soon as the snow melts and the temps hit the 60s, our kayaks go on the car and off we go every weekend.  As much as I hate the Upstate New York winters, I love our spring through fall kayaking season.  We are so fortunate to have so many waterways to explore so nearby.

Brian Hedges - Rochester Office

How do you get ready for a second child? With my wife Kim due with our second baby boy in just about two weeks, I am learning as I go…
 
Keep the house clean.
 
Paint the new baby’s room.
 
Set up the bedroom furniture.
 
Don’t forget to pack a “go bag” (everything you need to have for a 2+ day hospital stay).

Stacie Muldoon - Rochester Office

Summer is my favorite time of year as a marketer!  Not only because I don’t have to pack school lunches every day, but also because I get to help my coworkers and the Partners of the Firm to plan their business development goals.  Some people are naturals when it comes to networking while others need a little more support but each person is optimistic which makes my job so fun.  Being a people person myself, I love to motivate others to get out of the office, meet new people, and promote MMB.   Bye bye school lunches, hello happy hour networking!

Mark Kovaleski - Managing Partner

We recently held our annual retreat at del Lago Casino.  We invite all of our management team to attend this two day event.  Our team includes our partners, principals, directors and managers.  A record high 52 people participated this year!  We spend a day and a half discussing our business, looking for ways to continually improve and bonding with our colleagues.  We had a great dinner, hit the casino and some of us kept the bartenders pretty busy!  Overall it was a great event and my biggest takeaway was how fortunate I am to practice with such a great group of people!
