Our very own, Webmaster, Patricia Donkor is a 2017-2018 Resident Blogger for the Greater Washington Area Chapter, Women Lawyers Division, National Bar Association (GWAC).  NOVABAA will cross-publish the blog series.

The series is titled: The Lady Lawyer: How do we care for self while trying to tackle it all?
A description of the blog can be found below.  
Between work, family, community, and social obligations, finding time for self-care requires an increasing amount of creativity and deliberation for myself and many other Lady Lawyers that I have encountered.  This blog will feature Lady Lawyers with different challenges, interests, backgrounds, and work environments.  Each month, I will have a sit-down with a Lady Lawyer.  We will discuss her background, her career, and her unique version of “self-care” in the midst of tackling it all.
