As a former practicing Trial lawyer, Paralegal Instructor, Orleans Parish Middle School Substitute Teacher, Tutor, Civilian Military Clerk, and Janitorial Assistant, I have acquired many skills that allow me to recognize learning styles and to apply problem resolution skills. These job settings have also allowed me to be mentored and to share my love for books with others,especially special- ed children or children whose lights just need to be lit differently.
As the managing attorney of my Law Firm I was responsible for a staff of one to three contractors by: analyzing legal and non- legal problems, recognizing the appropriate legal issues and solutions, and communicating problem management directives to bring about results which improved lives.
As a naval reserve civilian military clerk I was responsible for analyzing and processing the files of exiting military employees so they would receive the appropriate benefits or entitlements.
During the summer months I worked as a janitorial assistant helping my dad in his small janitorial business. I would pick up trash, empty trashcans, and dust furniture and furnishings.
Southern University Law Center was another step towards my goal of becoming an attorney. While there I was selected to serve on the faculty/student professional board and additionally as a tutor assisted in developing an after school tutorship program for law students. I was also honored first in my graduating class, followed by graduate and post -graduate honors and achievements: a co-award for attaining the highest academic grade in the State of Louisiana in the area of civil law studies, a recommended peered reviewed fellowship candidacy in the American Trial Lawyers Association as one of the top 100 trial lawyers in the State of Louisiana, achieving a 97.7 percentile trial record, and the national honor of a Rosa Parks and Southern Poverty Law Center Wall of Tolerance scholar designation for my achievements in the area of Civil Rights.
I attended the University of New Orleans from 1975-May, 1977.
