Name: Shawnna Riggers
Title: Owner and Managing Attorney of Arizona Family Law Attorneys
City you live in: Phoenix
A typical day in my life includes… Waking up and making a latte first thing. Between consultations, hearings, and the complexities of family and juvenile law, every day brings something new. I look forward to helping as many people as I can. After work, I wind down by making dinner and riding my bike.
I was born… In Idaho
My favorite thing about Arizona… Beautiful sunrises, sunsets, and the diversity of our geographical formations.
I’m listening to… How I Built This, by Guy Raz
My family… Lives back in Idaho. It was my grandma’s dream to be a snowbird, so after visiting for many years, I decided to make Arizona my home.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Angelina Jolie. I would love to chat with her about how she is a UN Humanitarian Ambassador and her journey as an adoptive mother.
One thing I cannot live without… Haribo Watermelon Gummies
When I was younger, I wanted to be… An Oyster Farmer to give pearl necklaces to my mom.
I’m inspired by… Julia Child, she forged ahead in a predominantly male profession and had an amazing career. She impacted so many people through her passion for French home cooking.
The one person who motivates me is… My mom, she is going to retire soon and has worked as a nurse for over 45 years. If I want to help as many families as she did, I better get to work.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… Childhood hunger
The perfect day would be… A day to myself hiking without a cell phone.
My first job was… A clothing store, and I spent every paycheck on a new outfit.
My favorite escape… Looking at food photography.
My life… Is well rounded. I have a fulfilling and meaningful career and make every effort to be a good boss and mentor. I also feel that it is important to make time for family and friends.
I’m currently working on… Knitting a sweater.
Always… Wear your seatbelt and sunscreen.
Never… Draw a line in the sand and leave no room for compromise.
Favorite Quote… “Discipline is choosing between what you want now & what you want most.” Abraham Lincoln
Biggest Dream… Owning apartments that are fully handicap accessible.
My Pet Peeve(s)… People delaying traffic on the freeway by watching accidents.
