Lawyer Speaks to Members of the Women in Social Sciences Academy

by Pat Burns

Karen Godsoe, an attorney and a 1993 graduate of Mount Mercy Academy spoke to twenty members of the Women in Social Sciences Academy recently.  Godsoe, a child advocate attorney was the speaker for the month of March.  She spoke to the students about the myriad law fields that they could specialize in, the importance of work/family balance and what some of the undergraduate programs work well with the study of law.  

Sophomore Vayana Stoyanova (Gowanda) commented, “I fully enjoyed Mrs. Godsoe's presentation. As a student considering going into law, it was inspiring to hear from a speaker who has extensive experience in the field and is also a wife and a mom. She showed us that it is possible to follow your career goals and also be a family person.”

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
