1. Three things that #PROPEL me are:
(1) my family and friends
(3) My amazing family, friends, and partner Roy, who keep me grounded and remind me to find the fun in life.
2. I #PROPEL others by:
My personality type is INFJ ("the Advocate"), which means I'm idealistic, but also action-oriented. As an attorney, I like to think I ask the hard questions and know how to make a plan to take ideas and make them real.
3. I think Ms. JD #PROPELs others by:
Letting female law students and attorneys know they're not alone. The legal profession can be isolating, especially for women and minorities who don't always see people who look like them in the profession. I love that Ms. JD provides a space for honest conversation about these issues, builds community, and highlights women who shine. I also love our willingness to evolve and embrace new technology, which can be so helpful to faclitating our mission and provides an accessible, fun space share, collaborate, and grow.
4. I'm excited for Ms. JD #PROPEL on March 3rd at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law because:
I love seeing my fellow Ms. JD board members and staff but also meeting Ms. JD community members. Chicago will be my 4th Ms. JD conference! I remember the first time I went in 2014 but as Ms. JD's social media manager, I knew I enjoyed Ms. JD but it was really the conference that made me fall in love with the community Ms. JD created.
Editor's Note: All of us at Ms. JD are gearing up for our Ninth Annual Conference themed Ms. JD P.R.O.P.E.L. "Promoting Retention Opportunity Partnership Excellence and Leadership" which will take place March 3, 2017 at Northwestern's Pritzker School of Law. You can learn more about the conference here.
As part of our preparation, we're writing blog posts about what propels us. Join in the fun by answering the four questions above on your own blog. Never written for Ms. JD before? Here's how to get started.
