Open Ninth - Episode 140

Heather Meglino first developed a passion for serving others when she was just seven years old.

Working with organizations like the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Harbor House of Central Florida, Heather’s passion for helping others is evident. Listen in as she sits down with Chief Judge Lisa Munyon to talk about becoming CFAWL’s current president and how the organization serves women lawyers.
