From Sarah Coleman (FSU History), who acted and worked on many of our films). “Like many of you, in 2016 I became very curious about how our American legal system works.  That interest lead me to go back to school to acquire my third degree in Paralegal Studies (graduated Magna Cum Laude) and, because I love a good accolade, I also tackled the NALA paralegal certification exam like a boss and am now a Certified Paralegal.  I have the lapel pin to prove it!  Here’s why I am reaching out - I recently landed in Atlanta and am looking for work as an Entertainment Paralegal.  If you feel inspired to reach out because you think it would be fun to reconnect and/or you have an Atlanta based job lead, please email me at: thesarahcoleman at gmail.com<mailto:thesarahcoleman at gmail.com> or https://www.linkedin.com/in/sarahcolemanparalegal/<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/www.linkedin.com/in/sarahcolemanparalegal/__;!5Xm4_O-4tfk!hqyNuMjOh82AWdya7MHcUY7gcoCNfefNRQILALZ3Z-Y_nl5bveNGSgZusrSAMDc$>

We leave this weekend for a road trip to Albuquerque to meet friends for the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.  Have had excellent fiesta advice from Summer (BFA 2)  and Jetta Schantz so really  looking forward to it!  We’ll make stops in Biloxi, and several other places to visit friends.   Shouldn’t be much of any delay with Warren Reports so send me good news!
