Me in a minute

It is rewarding to encounter an issue and help make the problem disappear

I like connecting information and people, and I like fixing things. My corporate transactional work requires sifting through large amounts of information and coordinating with many people to work as a team toward resolution. It is rewarding to encounter an issue and help improve the situation or make the problem disappear, or to rectify a messy situation. When I was young I wanted to be a writer and to help people. Practicing corporate law involves the use of significant writing and negotiation skills, and helps people as well.

My work in corporate sustainability matters (such as sustainability reporting and benefit corporation and other impact entities) is one way that I help people and their businesses to start and thrive. I also like the constructive nature of transactional work, and its often (but not always) collaborative approach to matters. Since I am focused on problem solving, I tend to be intrepid in reaching solutions and finding paths through issues.
