In addition to my work in private practice, I served as the first External Director of The Stanford Law School Wellness Project, where I founded, co-hosted, and produced the WellnessCast,™ a monthly podcast about wellness and mental health in the legal profession.
The Wellness Project was founded by Joseph Bankman, a Stanford tax law professor and clinical psychologist. Professor Bankman recognized the importance of emotional resilience to cope with the stresses of a demanding professional career. He saw a need to provide law students with further information and tools to recognize and effectively manage common mental health challenges. I share these values and was very pleased to have had the opportunity to advance the goals of the Project and develop further areas of study and dialogue.
