My decision to take the LSAT was made on a whim, but I chose to become an attorney and practice law the way I do today very deliberately. Let me explain…
I was a nurse for ten years, and although I loved caring for my patients, I eventually became burnt out and realized it was time to make a change. I missed the research and intellectual rigor of school and toyed with the idea of getting my master’s degree in history, the subject I enjoyed so much. Of course, my husband had other ideas and suggested that I study something more “vocational.” In the back of my mind, I knew he was right, so I thought, “Why not take the LSAT just to see how I do?”
To my surprise, I scored incredibly highly and began to seriously consider the prospect of attending law school. Becoming an attorney actually seemed to incorporate all of the things I loved — helping others, creative problem solving, research, and history. The more I thought I about it, the more I realized that the law could be my calling.
“Holistic healing extends beyond the world of medicine. When you’re facing a difficult situation, you deserve an attorney who will shelter your mind, body, and spirit.”
