Interview of the Month

An Interview with 
Heather R. Gushue

Susan L. Pollet

Chair of the Archive and Historian Committee

Q: When and why did you become involved in the WWBA?

A: I became a member of the WWBA in September 2019 after transitioning from working at Hogan Lovells LLP in its NYC office to practicing in Westchester County as an associate at Shapiro Gettinger Waldinger & Monteleone LLP.  Soon after becoming a member of the WWBA, I was appointed co-chair of the Appellate Practice Committee in December 2019.  I joined the WWBA for the professional opportunities that the organization has to offer  in Westchester County and to be involved with an organization that advances legal issues involving women. 

Q: Which WWBA activities have you participated in?

A: Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic began soon after I became co-chair of the Appellate Practice Committee.  I did attend the WWBA holiday party in December 2019 and look forward to attending more in-persona and virtual events in the future.

President's Message

by Hon. Lisa Margaret Smith

November is the month when we give thanks for all of our blessings.  I, for one, would like to thank each of the members and friends of the WWBA who have responded to my October message, about my journey with breast cancer.  Those responses have been heartfelt and uplifting, and at times they have made me cry as others have shared their own journeys with cancer.  The prayers and good wishes I have received have buoyed my spirits and nourished my hope.  No matter my diagnosis, I give thanks for my health, and for the health of all those who walk this life with me, including my WWBA family, my Court family, my extensive network of friends, and my own immediate family.
