Lead Beyond is this year’s theme for Colorado Women’s Bar Association CWBA, the second largest women’s bar association in the nation. Listen in on this delightful and inspiring episode recorded September 2020 as Law Talk Global Network founder Krystyn Hartman visits with CWBA Board President 2020 Miranda Hawkins, an estate planning attorney with the law firm of Goddard & Hawkins in Cherry Creek, on the magic behind the ongoing success of the organization. “We added 71 new members just this summer,” Hawkins says of the 1500-member CWBA. “We’ve never been an organization that sits and waits; we get things done; we are on it.” Growing up in a small Texas town “with a Barbie doll in one hand and a BB gun in the other; and growing up there as a girl; it was not expected that I would be in the career I’m in today,” she says, adding, “although, my uncle still reminds me that I can always fall back on my 10 years as a classically trained pianist if it doesn’t work out.” After the discussion on CWBA as a leadership organization, Hawkins shares some of her valuable insights on estate planning and how she went from “litigator to estate planner.” Thank you for listening!
