NICOLE ON WHY SHE STAYS AN AALL MEMBER & HOW PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT HAS HELPED HER AS A NEW MEMBER IN THE PROFESSION
Nicole Guerrero is a Business Intelligence Analyst at Holland & Knight LLP in Tampa, Florida.
WHY DID YOU JOIN AALL?
I joined the Association for professional development and to network with fellow legal information professionals.
WHY DO YOU STAY A MEMBER?
After I joined, I realized that AALL meets the criteria I was seeking and then some. The online learning opportunities have been invaluable. I’m still a fledgling compared to others in the profession, so every little bit helps!
WHAT ONE MEMBER BENEFIT IS MOST VALUABLE TO YOU?
As I said, the eLearning, especially access to CALI Lessons, has been quite useful. I also enjoy the publications and staying up-to-date with topics in the profession.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY ASSOCIATED WITH AALL?
I got to attend my very first AALL Annual Meeting last year—unfortunately it was virtual, due to the state of the world right now, but it was still a lot of fun and I learned a lot.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING OUTSIDE OF WORK?
When I’m not working, I’m reading, recording my podcast, The Forgotten Library, or cooking.
WHAT BOOK(S) ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING?
Amora: Stories by Natalia Borges Polesso; the original is in Portuguese, which I don’t speak, unfortunately.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE TRAVEL/VACATION DESTINATION?
I love cruises and I have been to Cozumel, Mexico, twice, just for the day. It was so much fun and the water is beautiful; I would love to stay for a couple of days next time.
