Hello Washington.

Laughing all the Way to Work

I am guest posting on IAAP's Capital Chapter blog site so I wanted to say hello in case any visitors head over my way. I have been keeping in contact with the newly elected President in Washington (of IAAP that is) over the last year and she asked me to write a post on being a legal assistant. I have just accepted a position as an Executive Assistant so will be leaving the legal field at the end of the month, but I have enjoyed my time in law and have learned so many things.
