President’s Message

I look forward to serving the Roanoke Valley Paralegal Association as President of 2018.  I hope you will consider joining RVPA for our meetings where we host speakers on current topics, ethics and all areas of the law.

As your President, I remain focused on ensuring that all our members and anyone wanting to join RVPA is aware of the many valuable and helpful resources and tools available, not just to help with your daily professional legal needs, but also to support your career development and advancement.  Joining RVPA for our monthly meetings keep you updated on any new changes in the law, along with learning about areas of the law (who knows when something will pop up at your law firm, and you remember a speaker who talked about this subject?).

In closing, my challenge to each of you is to take the initiative to grow personally and professionally in 2018.  I also encourage you to provide feedback to me anytime at  Together we can continue to make RVPA the leading association for continued growth in our profession.
