My Top Three Career Tips
  1. Be flexible with your career aspirations. I always thought I wanted to be a lawyer, but as my life circumstances changed, I realized that a career change was best for my family.
  2. Get your education. Although I no longer practice law, the education I received in law school was something that will always benefit me and also something I can always fall back on.
  3. Work hard. Always put your best foot forward and don’t be afraid to go above and beyond.
