During law school, Helen worked as a research assistant for a prominent Employment and Labor Law professor and arbitrator, and was an intern with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. Helen is a Marshall-Brennan Fellow, who along with a select group of upper class law students, taught courses in constitutional law and juvenile justice at local area high schools. Helen received the CALI Excellence for the Future Award in Constitutional Law, Labor Law, Mediation of Workplace Disputes, and the Marshall-Brennan Advanced Constitutional Literacy Practicum. The CALI Award is presented to the student who receives the highest grade in each law school course.
Prior to law school, Helen worked at a major insurance company for over 20 years, where she held positions such as Human Resources Specialist, Supervisor, Manager and Director. Helen was subsequently appointed to the position of Assistant Vice-President and served as the Executive Director and Officer-in-Charge for several large regional operations. Although Helen enjoyed her time in the corporate sector, she was always interested in law and seeking justice for others, which led her to return to school to earn her law degree. Helen has worked at the firm as a law clerk since 2016 and is currently preparing to take the Ohio State Bar Exam. She plans to use her law degree and prior work experience to represent individuals in the areas of employment and civil rights law.
