Prior to joining Habitat, she practiced law in the commercial real estate practices of Alston & Bird LLP, in Atlanta, Georgia and at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison in New York City.

“Conferences like the IWF event are important because often we do not have access to influential role models in our lives. It is amazing to have the opportunity to meet and learn from people who look like us and break barriers for us” — Taylor McNeil (Georgia State University, B.S. Computer Science student)
“We are constantly imagining our roles and shaping our social values through role models and social environment. IWF provides the resources, successful women leaders as role models, and a nurturing environment through the 2020 IWF Mentor-mentee Event. The forum deepened our social awareness and inspired more young professionals to be involved in the mission of protecting the rights and benefits of disadvantaged and minority groups.” — Fengjiao Cheryl Lin (Georgia State University, B.B.A. Managerial Science student)
