Interview of the Month

An Interview with 
Wendy Marie Weathers

Susan L. Pollet

Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee

Q: When and why did you become involved in the WWBA?

A: In 2010, when I moved my career back to Westchester, I was immediately invited to join the WWBA by my mentors Jody Fay and Dawn Kirby. I was welcomed with enthusiasm and support. I sought inclusion and collaboration with other attorneys, which I found to be invaluable.

Q: Which activities and positions of the WWBA have you participated in?

A: Upon joining the WWBA, I immediately became a member of the Bankruptcy Committee.  Shortly thereafter, in 2011, Past President Lonya Gilbert appointed me as a Co-Chair of the Bankruptcy Committee along with Susan Mills Richmond.  One year later, I was appointed to be Co-Chair of Law Practice Management along with Jamieson Keiser.  We collaborated with the Westchester County Bar Association in numerous activities including presenting and attending CLE classes.  I also have had the pleasure to attend several NYSBA and WBASNY events supporting WWBA members honored at them.
