Show Notes

In this episode of Topping the Curve I interview Kinika Young. Kinika is the Senior Director of Health Policy and Advocacy at the Tennessee Justice Center and a former big law partner 

Throughout the episode Kinika discusses her transition from a big law firm partner to her current public interest role:

-       How to know when its time to make a career transition  

-       Resisting the golden handcuffs 

-       Finding the right job for you and approaching the transition

-       Exploring multiple options during law school

Kinika goes into depth about all of the above and more! A lot of things we discussed can be further explored in past episodes:
