  • Hi - I need a referral for a lawyer who is familiar with Virgin Islands law, and in particular Homeowners Association provisions. Any suggestions?

  • Dear Fellow IvyLifers — since this new site is all about networking, I thought I might share a typical slice of life at my day job as a General Counsel who also does a lot of work around empowering other in-house counsel to succeed in their careers.

    In this case, I just partnered with some legal thought leaders on the 4th Annual In-House Legal Benchmarking Survey — our report came out yesterday and you can CLICK HERE to see some of the details, which should be pretty interesting to anyone who deals with legal issues or lawyers.

    Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

    All the best,

  • Hi all! You are welcome to join the new group, IvyLife College Admissions. I just posted my takeaways from the live event last week at which the Wall Street Journal 2020 college rankings were announced--including a link to a very short video I took of the announcement of the Number One College. Why the groans? Join the group and find out--and see where your alma mater ranked this year.

    • Hi Marlena,

      I would like to join the new group.  I’m also looking forward to hearing your college admissions webinar.  

      I work with college students to help them manage stress.  I’m concerned that most students aren’t prepared for college life and that has led to an increase in anxiety and depression on campuses. 

      I’m sure you have some thoughts on the subject.  My coaching teaches students how to implement healthy habits and stress reducing strategies into their daily lives.

      • Hi Dale! That sounds like such a valuable service. One of the long-range goals of my work with high-school students is to help them arrive at college prepared to thrive. So many don't, which is a terrible waste of time and money. In the worst cases, it's positively dangerous. I'd be happy to learn more about your work. Just post in thegrouzp! Best wishes, Marlena

      • Dale — your work sounds like exactly what today's over-scheduled, stressed-out high school students need — keep up the good work!

    • Thanks Marlena — I'm looking forward to your college admissions webinar for IvyLife tomorrow evening!  Here is the link for those who are interested.
