It is every person’s dream to have the life everyone dreams of, to find love, get married, have a nice house, nice cars, and a good career. Part of the responsibilities of having children is giving them a great life. But things happen, people get divorced, they lose jobs, and life can turn upside down. When you have children your job is to do whatever you can to provide for them and give them a happy life. It was never in my plan to be a divorced parent, but sometimes it’s better that way.
I have two kids ages 3 and 7 and every day I get up in the morning for work because I know I have to provide for them. It is not just me. I have 2 kids that depend on me. So, I am very thankful for Eberstein & Witherite and the opportunity I have to provide for my children. Working full time and taking care of them full time can be a struggle but I am also grateful that Eberstein & Witherite is very flexible with me if my kids get sick or they have activities going on at school I have the option to take time off if needed.
My experience as a single parent helps me with my role as a legal assistant at Eberstein & Witherite. By being patient and organized I help my clients that have been hurt in a car accident so that I can do whatever it takes to work around their schedule. This mentality allows me to schedule their attorney meetings, mediations, and depositions while making it as easy as possible for their schedule.
I want my kids to know that education is very important and they can be whoever they want to be as long as you don’t give up on your dreams. My dream was to become a mother and I am to these two wonderful kids. But that comes with sacrifice, patience, unconditional love and so many other things. I am fortunate to have this opportunity to work with others who share my passion for taking care of our clients the same way we take care of our families. I hope my kids will understand one day, that I can’t be with them twenty- four seven, but If I work hard enough, I can provide all that they need in life.
