She also used to work as an after school gardening instructor at Rodriguez Elementary.
Speaking of her academic record, she graduated from The University of Pennsylvania in 2006. She also attended law school and passed the New York bar exams. Her hard work paid off as it landed her in the Brooklyn district attorney’s office during the run of Christine’s The Good Wife.
Growing Up As A Star Kid
Growing up as a star kid is not easy, you spend most of your time on a windowless soundstage, take most meals alone, mutter lines to yourself like a madwoman, which sucks says, Isabel. As she and her younger sister were little, their mom was cast as a hard-drinking best friend to Cybill Sheperd in Cybill. Even after their mom became a star in Hollywood, Isabel never showed off their status. When her friends asked she used to name her mom’s movies and use to refer she is a great actress.

She loved the charismatic environment of the countryside and liked gardening. Isabel lives a comfortable life outside the limelight with her husband and her sons Max Murphy and Matthew Murphy.

She revealed that her eldest daughter gave birth to her baby boy before Christmas of 2013. Her grandchild arrived on December 2nd and he is for sure the cutest child.
Isabel and her husband live only 20 blocks away from Christine’s house, so, she usually ends up babysitting her grandchild Max. Christine says she is a wonderful babysitter, in fact, she is the best you can possibly get. In an interview with Ryan and Kelly, she told that she is babysitting not one but three grandsons.
