Although she enjoyed nursing, loved individual patient care, and helped families, law school was always a personal goal for her. “I don’t feel like I can change the world, but for each client, I like to use the law to change it for that one person. What I find most gratifying is what is it about the law and what I know, and what I can do to make it better for this family or client to make a difference in their life.”
