One of my favorite things to do is to write. It is how I make sense of the world and it gives me the chance to learn things very deeply. I love writing on topics relating to the law and my practice, including government liability, civil rights, torts, immunity, open meeting and open records requirements, special education, school law, and general litigation. On these topics, I have written articles for local, state-wide, and national publications, including DRI, National School Board Association, Kentucky Defense Counsel, Inc., and the Northern Kentucky Bar Association.
This year, I also decided to put my years of experience practicing school law to a new use. I am the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of the Sixth Circuit School Law Blog, which is devoted to analyzing the newest cases in the area of school law in the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Ciruit, its District Courts, and its included states, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee.
I also enjoy writing on issues outside of law practice and am always open to new opportunities to write about topics relating to family, work/life balance, and finding success as a female professional. For examples of this, please review the Ms. JD tab to see my links to my blog posts for the 2018 Writers in Residence program, where I explored many of these issues for Ms. JD’s audience of primarily female attorneys. You can also read the article I recently wrote for the new Mothers Esquire column for Above the Law.
