As part of my role as Assistant General Counsel for Microsoft, I provide lead legal support to Microsoft’s U.S. Central Region Enterprise & Partner Group – a team of sales, devices and services professionals located in 18 states and 5 Microsoft districts. With my team, I help shape and establish a wide range of agreements with customers and partners, including cloud computing agreements, and I provide advice on general corporate legal matters. I am also blessed to step outside of my duties with Microsoft and use technology to help the greater community at large, combining law and technology to do what I do best.
I feel honored to have been recently elected to the Board of Directors of Illinois Legal Aid Online (ILAO). The mission of ILAO is to increase access to justice for lower-income and vulnerable Illinois residents through the innovative use of technology to assist and educate the public and to train and support legal aid providers and pro bono attorneys. I’m really excited to serve as a ILAO Board Member and to help improve access to justice through technology.
