What #PROPELS Ms. JD’s Vice President Liz Hague

1. Three things that #PROPEL me are: (1) Learning - Ever since I was a little kid, I've devoted my time to reading and learning about the world around me. I love that as a lawyer I find myself digging into diverse subjects, and using that knowledge to advocate on behalf of my clients; (2) Improving the world around me - through volunteering, my Board service, and trying to make my community a better place; (3) My amazing family, friends, and partner Roy, who keep me grounded and remind me to find the fun in life. 2.

Dear Ms. JD Community: By now, I'm sure you've read up on Ms. JD's new President, Raychelle Tasher, and her vision for Ms. JD 3.0, as well as outgoing President Katie Larkin-Wong's farewell letter to our community as Ms. JD President.

Hae Min Lee is not Laura Palmer: On Serial, Victims, and Empathy

For a long time, I resisted watching David Lynch’s Twin Peaks; there was no way it could live up to the hype. But, of course, once I started watching a few years ago, it totally did, and I became engrossed in the story of Special Agent Dale Cooper, who comes to the town of Twin Peaks to investigate the lurid murder of teenager Laura Palmer.
