Background & Experience
I am a transplant to the community of Woodbury but have deep roots in Minnesota. My mother was born and raised in St. Paul and we have family ties to Henry Hastings Sibley – the first governor of Minnesota. I attended high school in Vermont, college in Maine and law school in Boston. I worked full-time while in law school at two different investment management companies. I spent a semester at William Mitchell (now Mitchell Hamline) before moving here permanently in 2009. My husband, Matthew Benson, and I chose Woodbury to raise our family and are so grateful for the decision.
I met my business and law partner in 2009 and we started our firm, Sykora & Santini, in 2010. We are transactional attorneys focusing on estate planning, estate administration and general business law.
I have two energetic little boys who inspire me each day to advocate for their futures and the future of our community here in Woodbury.
