She continued this employment until their merger with Fastcase legal research in July of 2021. In this role, she traveled the entire country training attorneys, judges, and other legal professionals on how to use Casemaker. This position took her from the bustling streets of Midtown Manhattan to speak at the New York City Bar Association to gorgeous Jackson, Wyoming for the Wyoming State Bar. She loved the diversity of the locations she visited and meeting legal professionals across the country. She also did online training and webinars.
