WHAT IS MOST SATISFYING ABOUT YOUR JOB? As a litigator, I often meet people at a time when they are faced with a contentious dispute in their lives. I enjoy helping people navigate through the unknown waters of a legal claim to a positive resolution. – Rachel Turnbull
HOW DO YOU BALANCE WORK AND HOME LIFE? I ask myself, ‘If I say yes to this, is it worth the time I must take from another priority to accomplish it?’ If it’s not, I gracefully say no and focus on my priorities instead.
– Corrie Hall
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT RIGHT NOW? I am excited about Macon-Bibb’s project to clean up blighted communities. Blighted communities are an eye-sore, and often used for criminal activity. – Kim Stroup
I HOPE MORE WOMEN WILL: Determine and pursue their own happiness. Society often dictates what our happiness should look like. While breaking the glass ceiling is a desirable goal, set your own glass ceiling to shatter.
– Lauren Schultz
WHO INFLUENCED YOU THE MOST TO PURSUE YOUR CAREER GOALS? My children. I want them to know that it’s possible to love your work almost as much as your family.
– Dallas Roper
THE MOST GRATIFYING PART OF MY JOB: Being able to come to work and learn something new every day. – Marlina Rogers
WHAT WOMAN INSPIRES YOU? Corrie Hall. She is the first female partner in our Macon office and is a shining example of what a female professional should strive to be. – Katie Coeyman
I ADMIRE WOMEN WHO: Are kind, passionate and overcome obstacles that would prevent many other people from pursuing their passions. – Itishree Lahoti
