She is a member of the firm’s Accounts Receivable Committee as well as the Pro Bono Committee, regularly participating in pro bono programs and providing free legal services to disadvantaged individuals, families, and the non-profit entities that serve them because she is convinced that it is the right thing for a lawyer to do and finds the work tremendously rewarding.
