Company Name: Fennemore, LLP
Recent Professional Accomplishment: After 26 years working at Rynn & Janowsky, LLP, my partners and I, made the move to join Fennemore, LLP with 250+ talented and skilled attorneys. I am currently the Vice-Chair of Programs for the Agribusiness Committee for the Business Law Section of the California Lawyers Association.
Philanthropic Interests: I regularly volunteer at Saddleback Food Pantry Distribution Center. Over the last 10 years, I’ve worked on four Corazon home builds in Mexico and two Habitat For Humanity home builds in Los Angeles. As a hobby, I paint on long weekends. I am currently in the very early stages of planning a 501(c)(3) non-profit for student scholarships and creating/painting art to raise money for the cause. Stay tuned.
Is there anything else you would like the OCWLA Members to know about you?: In May 2012, I was a recipient of the OCWLA's Diversity Bar Stipend Scholarship. At the time, I was a single mom of two young boys, working full-time, going to on-line law school (well before it was the Zoom norm). The stipend helped ease the financial burden of taking the bar exam. I am truly grateful of the assistance of OCWLA. If you’re a single mom, keeping going. It doesn’t get easier, but it gets better.
