What led you to work in the legal field?
I went to school to be a court reporter, graduated and found it hard to find a job in that area. I worked at a law firm in Topeka and liked it, and when my husband transferred to Kansas City, I worked at a separate law firm before getting my foot in the door at Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader. I’ve been here since.
Why is the legal field a good fit for your personality and skill set?
I’ve always been intrigued by the legal world and how it works, and I like working with and connecting with people.
How do you think Bartimus Frickleton Robertson Rader is different than other firms?
The firm’s charity work sets them apart. We participate in the Make-A-Wish Foundation, make weekly sandwiches for missions and work with other charities throughout the year.
