Dear DBA Young Lawyers,
We love getting to know you better! We are going to spotlight a member of the DBA-YLD every other week. If you are interested in being highlighted contact Heather Clark.
Where are you from? I started off in east Tennessee.
Where did you go to undergrad and law school? I went to undergraduate at Northeastern State University in the capital of the Cherokee nation. I had the pleasure of attending the University of Tulsa for law school. Go Hurricanes? (We had a weird mascot.)
Where are you working and what is your practice area? I very recently transitioned to Fennemore Craig as a part of a big expansion of the Denver office. My practice so far has mostly focused on civil litigation, especially health care and medical malpractice. I love the work I do and am excited to diversify the scope of my practice at FC.
What do you like best about that practice area? Always my clients. They are extraordinary professionals and I love when I am able to help them out.
What organizations are you involved in? The DBA, the CBA and the Colorado Intellectual Property Inn of Court. I’ve also been volunteering with a group of lawyers at Dora Moore elementary every Tuesday for a couple of years now and I recently became involved with the Colorado Poverty Law Project.
Outside of the law, what are your hobbies? Travel, friends, bicycling, uptown, yoga, vegetarian food at non-vegetarian restaurants, records, and concerts.
If you weren’t a lawyer, you’d be? A librarian.
Describe yourself in 3 words. enthusiastic, happy, literate.
Social media network of choice? Instagram. I genuinely enjoy looking at photos of cats and food.
Favorite place you’ve traveled to: I travel to Nepal next month, so hopefully Nepal!
Favorite Denver restaurant: Little India, hands down.
Favorite Spot in Denver: I love the view from the top floor of the parking garage at the mall. On a clear day, it really might be the best view in the city and it is always deserted.
Last movie you watched: I honestly can’t remember!
Favorite law school memory: I interned at the United Nations (ICTY) in The Hague, Netherlands one summer. I was there when two of the last war criminals wanted by the U.N. were extradited to the tribunal and was able to go along with my boss to interview one of them at the United National Detention Unit immediately after his extradition.
Most random job you have ever had. I briefly dealt Blackjack during law school.
