Joined MSJDN: 2014, in a state that didn’t have a rule accommodation AND DOES NOW!
Why MSJDN is important to me: I’ve maintained a career in two states only because MSJDNers before me paved the way to obtain rule accommodations and encourage local bars to understand the military spouse attorney perspective. Our MSJDN community is a community of SUPPORT– and that’s what I’ve found to be most important in balancing a legal career and a military lifestyle
Fun fact: The U.S. Department of State rejected my daughter’s photo (below) on a passport application because her eyes were closed (not because she was screaming). At the end of 2018, she will have visited half the US states, and 2 countries.
