An interview with Anne Scheetz Damon
What high school/college did you attend, and what did you study?
Villa Joseph Marie High School, received a bachelor of arts degree from Lafayette College and I received a juris doctorate degree from Widener University School of Law.
What is your ultimate goal in life?
To be the best I can be in every endeavor I undertake. Today this mantra means being the best mother to my three sons and the best attorney to my clients who rely on my expertise and counsel
What inspires you to do what you do?
That feeling of accomplishment I feel when I give of myself to assist others when they need it most. It is personally rewarding and inspires me to be a more generous and selfless person.
What is your most fulfilling experience to date?
Marrying my husband Sean and the birth of our three sons Gavin, Ryan and Brady.
What one person, living or dead, would you want to spend a day with and why?
My late father Lawrence R. Scheetz. I would chose to spend one more day with my father so I could thank him for always believing in me and pushing me to follow my dreams. My Dad was an exceptional father, attorney and man. My Dad instilled in me and my three siblings that you must “always do the right thing.” His example and his advice have been invaluable and I would love to have one more chance to thank him for being the Dad he was. I continue to strive to be more like him every day hoping to make him as proud of me as his daughter as I am proud that he is my Dad.
Tell us something that most people don’t know about you.
I was a Division 1 athlete playing both soccer and softball at Lafayette College.
If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?
To find a cure for childhood cancer. Watching a young child suffer from this terrible disease and watching the child’s parents who live in fear and feel helpless is cruel.
Name something from your “Bucket List” that you have not yet accomplished.
To run a marathon.
Coaching my sons’ soccer, basketball and t-ball teams.
If there was a movie made about you, what title would you give it and what movie star would play the role of you?
“For love of the game” played by Jennifer Anniston.
Advice for your fellow young up and comers?
As Eleanor Roosevelt once said: “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
