Q How much time does it require?
AURICH We typically have
rehearsals in Philadelphia two nights a
week. Rehearsals typically are about 3
to 3½ hours for those two nights. We
perform at all home games; we don’t
travel. The only away game we would
attend would be the Super Bowl, so
we’re hoping for good things this year.
We also do a lot of appearances
throughout the community. Some
months are busier than others, but
we love to get involved with the
community, and we do so much
as ambassadors for the Eagles.
Q How far is Philadelphia from where you live?
AURICH I live and work in
Princeton, New Jersey. Most of the
people in the Princeton area are
probably on the Philadelphia Eagles
side of the line. I think a little farther
north, you’ll get a lot of Giants and Jets
fans. On a good day without rush hour
traffic, I can get to the stadium in
about 50-60 minutes, so it’s not
Q You said you missed this year’s team calendar shoot because you
got married. When was that?
AURICH June 6. My husband,
Andrew Aurich, is a football coach for
Princeton University. Between his
schedule in the fall and then spring
recruiting, summer was really the only
time we could get married and enjoy a
honeymoon. Unfortunately, as a
cheerleader, our season starts in April.
Our down time is usually in the winter
months. We start right away in April with
meetings and then our calendar trip.
Unfortunately, this year I wasn’t
able to join in the calendar trip, but I
heard it was a great experience. I was
very upset to miss it. It’s a voluntary
opportunity. You’re not required to be
in the calendar, but obviously everyone
would like to be. It’s a great team bonding
experience for the whole group.
Q Where do they usually do the photo shoots for the calendar?
AURICH The past couple of years, it’s
been in Mexico, but they have shot in
various locations internationally. One
year, we shot at the Jersey Shore to raise
funds after Hurricane Sandy, which was
an awesome experience as well. That was
a very interesting calendar and a great
experience. A lot of people on the team
live down in the Jersey Shore, so they
were affected. It was nice to give back to
Q What have been some of your favorite or most gratifying
engagements at WithumSmith+Brown?
AURICH I was really excited to have
the opportunity to go on two separate
raids for two different bankruptcy clients.
The first raid was a new experience,
even for the partner on the job, Ken
DeGraw. He said, “I’ve worked my whole
career doing this, and I’ve never been on
a raid.” So this was something very
unique and interesting.
It was my first year on the job. I was
still inexperienced. I didn’t really know
what I was getting myself into. I was
going on the raid with an attorney
who was also on the case, and the
partner and another staff person
were heading to another location.
With a raid, you hit different locations
at the same time. We met with the U.S.
