Transitioning from solely being the lawyer at AbleLight, overseeing a department of one, to becoming the Executive Vice President of a 4,500-person organization has been incredible. I am extraordinarily blessed to work at AbleLight, a faith-based charity with a beautiful mission. Serving as both Executive Vice President and Chief Legal Officer allows me to help more people and contribute to the mission in a broader, more impactful way. It is so rewarding to help improve our mission and contribute to helping the people we support and our staff.”
