Women Helping Women

travis county women lawyers' associationI love women’s events, because they energize me. They remind me how smart and fun and committed we are to helping each other. This week’s annual luncheon held by the Travis County Women Lawyers’ Association was an especially inspiring gathering. I got to hang out with BFFs, listen to stories of the state’s pioneering women in legal and public service, and see one of my favorite women lawyers, Jana Terry, receive the President’s Award. (That’s me and Jana, a recent Do-Over! queen who left Big Law to start her own firm.)
