President's Message

It hardly feels real to be writing this President’s Message.  Nine years ago, I joined the WLALA Board with nothing more ambitious in mind than to meet more people who shared my values and see how I could contribute to an organization that already impressed me at every turn.  At that moment, I was in a low point of my career.  Personally, my husband and I had suffered a pregnancy loss that set us back a number of years.  Professionally, as the financial crisis deepened and spread and real estate values plummeted, I struggled with “rules” for law firm partnership that seemed to change radically overnight.  I was looking for something that would help me weather this storm and I had no idea what it was.  I only knew I could not get it from my firm.
