It has definitely been a blessing this summer to serve as an alumni mentor for the pilot program for the Envisions Career Academy through the University of Florida Career Connections Center. It was also a pleasure to participate in the Professional Branding workshop and share insight with college students participating in the program. No matter where I am in my career, I will NEVER drop the ladder behind me and will continue to help as many aspiring lawyers and young lawyers as I can. I will NEVER shut the door on those who ask for my help as we maneuver TOGETHER through our careers. To whom much is given, much is REQUIRED. We are blessed so that we can always be of a blessing to others.

This experience was so impactful for me. I was initially hesitant to sign up because I was nervous I might have trouble really connecting with a mentee. But, wow. I'm so glad that something told me to forge past that because I loved every minute of this.
