My perfect world is a place where each individual uses the gifts God gave them in a positive way. At Kimberly Washburn (law firm), my mission is to learn and understand my clients' needs and the external factors affecting them so that I can aggressively and professionally represent them throughout the legal process. I clearly communicate my legal knowledge and experience, thereby enabling my clients to make well-informed decisions for themselves.

20 I empower others to enrich their lives through volunteer service. I create volunteer opportunities and environments that foster growth, accomplishment, and a sense of fellowship and self-worth. I seek out and participate in opportunities that encourage sharing of knowledge among volunteer management practitioners to enhance the professionalism of the field. l live a life that is true to myself, not a life that is defined by others’ expectations. The power to create that life is in my own hands and I do not relinquish it to anyone else. I exercise that power with integrity, courage, honesty and gratitude. I infuse my life with laughter, forgiveness, curiosity, creativity, and compassion, and I seek to be a positive force in the lives of those I encounter along the way.
