I am honored to serve as your Membership, Leadership and Mentoring Team Leader for the 2018/2019 term. When I first stepped into a management role at a law firm, I needed law firm management assistance stat, but wasn’t sure where to find it.  Thankfully, a colleague suggested membership in the ALA because she was certain I would find like-minded professionals from whom I could learn in ALA.  That tip was a godsend.  Over the years, I have gained valuable friendships, connections and knowledge.  As the legal industry continues to evolve, I can’t think of a better group of people to share experiences with, grow and face challenges with, and celebrate achievements with. From our educational programs, networking and social events we’ve got you covered. But for me, the best benefit of the ALA is that I know there is always someone who will have my back! Join us and we will have your backs too.
