"Peggy Nickerson: Paralegal and Professor"

Oh, yes, we like successful people...! Good news from LawCrossing:

"Former public school teacher Peggy Nickerson was ready for a career change after staying home with her children. After reading about a legal assistant program at William Woods University in Fulton, MO—located about 30 miles from her home—she became the first 'nontraditional' student in the program, which was a daytime program held on campus. 'From the first course, I was in love,' said Nickerson.

"Now she is an assistant professor in the legal studies department at William Woods University and also serves as the coordinator for both the paralegal studies program and the juvenile justice program. 'I teach a minimum of four courses per semester in both programs. I am also a freelance litigation and domestic relations paralegal in my spare time through my business, Nickerson Paralegal Services, LLC,' she said.

"Nickerson began teaching paralegal courses in the evenings at a community college while she worked in a personal-injury litigation law firm. 'I then was asked to teach a class at William Woods University. A year or so later, I was asked to teach half-time in the WWU program and then became a full-time faculty member about 13 years ago,' said Nickerson. 'When I began teaching half-time, I resigned from the law firm and began doing some freelance work setting up mock juries/focus groups for personal-injury litigation attorneys and doing some freelance domestic work for family law attorneys.'"
