[TRANSCRIPT] I was the first woman hired by my law firm in Cincinnati. I was the first woman partner at my law firm in Cincinnati. I was on the forefront, on the cutting edge of working part-time once I had children. So at that time that I was having children, it was unusual for attorneys in law firms to work part-time, but I started working part-time and my firm supported that. And I've been very fortunate in that every firm I have been at since has supported part-time work. That allowed me to not only continue my work but to do what I felt I needed to do for my family.
