Why did you join the WBA?
I credit my longtime friend and fellow WBA member Jennifer Mika with bringing me into the fold at the close of law school. I was excited about the prospect of finding community with fellow women lawyers. I only wish I would have joined sooner!
What benefits have you seen from your membership?
I have had the opportunity to work with incredibly talented lawyers, and in the process, I’ve gained a support network of friends, role models, and contacts. WBA programs and relationships have been instrumental in broadening my knowledge of the practice of law and of the array of career paths that are possible. I think I come away from every WBA event having gained a new insight or a new acquaintance – and usually both! I have also enjoyed mentoring newer attorneys and watching them gain confidence in their abilities.
Why do you think others should join?
Joining the WBA unlocks access to programs with top-notch experts and a network of professionals that can help you grow at any stage of your career.
What are you excited about now?
I took up rowing a few years ago, and I am looking forward to spending my spare summer hours on the water with my fellow scullers and our club’s adaptive rowing program.
