Though I am an introvert, speaking has always been something that I really enjoy. I also have to do it quite a bit as a part of my litigation practice. In that respect, I regularly speak for organizations about the following topics, including:
- governmental liability;
- civil rights;
- employment law;
- open records/open meetings compliance;
- special education; and
- school law.
As a woman professional, I am also specifically interested in various issues adjacent to law practice in order to improve the legal profession and the lives of practitioners. For that reason, I have also spoken to professional and attorney associations about non-legal issues, including:
- the benefits of mindfulness meditation for professionals;
- the value of community service;
- work/life balance for women professionals;
- networking; and
- finding quality mentors.
