Paralegal Practice Tip: Calendar EVERYTHING! And never put a file back on the shelf without setting a date to look at it again.
Favorite Internet Resource: I can’t really say there’s any one website that would constitute my favorite – it really depends on what my needs are at any given time. But I’m partial to NFPA’s website, http://www.paralegals.org/, because there are so many great resources there.

Do you use social media resources, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter or blogs for professional purposes?
Yes, I use LinkedIn to stay up-to-date on the specific litigation practice areas in which I work on files.
Fun Fact: I’m never as happy as when I’m planning my next trip, whether it be for personal or professional reasons, although I’m partial to cruises.
Many thanks to Georgette, who is super busy as the current president of NFPA, for sharing a little about her career with Practical Paralegalism’s readers. You can hear Georgette, along with Tracey L. Young, RP, talk about NFPA’s benefits and activities on the most recent edition of The Paralegal Voice, “Regulation of the Paralegal Profession – NFPA Says ‘Yes'”.
