    Episode 85: Mother's Day Special

    Welcome to a special episode of Women In Law On The Record. This week I'm sharing a few stories of women lawyers who are also moms. I wanted to honor all the mom lawyers out there and share the good, the bad, and the ugly of being a lawyer and a mom. So you'll hear all those sides. And I preview my next episode as well featuring Kristine Campbell. Thanks for listening!

    Episode No. 84: Erin Borg, Assistant General Counsel, Neiman Marcus Group

    Episode No. 84: Erin Borg, Assistant General Counsel, Neiman Marcus Group

    Today I’m talking with Erin Borg, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel for the Neiman Marcus Group. Erin is an Arizona native who moved across the country to attend Indiana University Bloomington where she studied political science. She would later return to Arizona to attend the University of Arizona for law school. But, before that, she made a stop to intern at the White House during the Clinton administration. It was her time in Washington D.C. that helped Erin decide she wanted to pursue a legal career. She started out her practice in private practice but made the move in-house to US Airways (now American Airlines) where she primarily focused on labor and employment issues. Erin made a few more stops in-house before landing at Neiman Marcus Group. She speaks openly about why she made the moves she did and how she thinks it has (or has not) impacted her long term. On the whole, through her experiences, Erin has developed a well rounded practice and expertise that has positioned her well for her current position and any role she may have down the road. I found a lot of good takeaways from our conversation, including how we both still deal with imposter syndrome. And y’all…this isn’t a generic discussion about how I question whether I deserve to be a lawyer. We keep it real…giving legit examples of how it shows up for both of us. Please enjoy listening to Erin Borg.

    Episode No. 83: Lindsey Swiger, Senior Associate, Norton Rose Fulbright

    Today I’m talking with Lindsey Swiger, Senior Associate at Norton Rose Fulbright in Houston, Texas. Lindsey is an energy lawyer who has spent her career advising clients on conventional and renewable energy transactions across the value chain.  Lindsey's practice focuses on project development and financing, mergers, acquisitions, divestments and joint venture structuring. Prior to joining Norton Rose Fulbright, Lindsey was in-house counsel with Exxon. During our conversation, Lindsey candidly shares her journey in and out of big law, how life circumstances factored into her career decisions, and how she persevere through some especially challenging times. In my opinion, conversations like this one with Lindsey don’t happen enough in our industry. I’m so proud of Lindsey for sharing her story and inspiring others, myself included. Please enjoy.

    Today I’m talking with Camie Carlock McKee, senior energy transactions associate at Haynes Boone in Dallas, Texas. Camie is a graduate of Washington and Lee University where she studied political science and the University of Texas Law School where she was an active participant at the Center for Women In Law.

She shared several important mentorship moments she’s experienced and we bonded over how to work through anxiety or self-doubt. I really enjoyed my conversation with Camie and I hope you do too.
