In case you were wondering what qualifies me to talk about transferring law schools, or the myriad other things you’ll find here, I thought it might be useful to provide a little insight into how I got to where I am now. After blogging anonymously for a number of years, I decided I am now far enough removed from law school that it is finally okay to be a little more transparent about who I am. So, here goes…
I received my B.S. in Communication from Cornell University in 2003 (Ithaca really is Gorges, for about 6 months out of the year. The rest of the time, it’s just Cold). After a brief stint as a Starbucks barista, I began law school at a local university and then transferred to the University of Georgia School of Law, where I finished my law degree in 2007.
After passing the bar and practicing law for a few years, I discovered I really didn’t like being in the courtroom or dealing with actual clients. To date, my winding career path has gone something like this:
- Superior Court Staff Attorney (loved the job, didn’t love the salary)
- Civil Litigator
- Executive Director of a small, local non-profit organization
- Corporate Attorney
I now work in the legal department of a large healthcare corporation, which is a great fit: I don’t have to go to court, but get to do challenging and interesting legal work for a company that makes our healthcare system safer and more efficient and cost-effective.
Recently, I also received my 200-hour yoga teacher training certification, and am slowly but surely finding my footing in teaching. If you’re interested, you can check out my schedule and yoga blog here.
In the meantime, I am whiling away the hours blogging about the things I love (in no particular order): dogs, books, volunteering, plants, cooking and DIY projects, with a healthy dose of randomness for good measure. If you don’t find me helpful, hopefully you’ll find me at least mildly entertaining.
