Introducing an EPEL RA: Miranda Robinson
The (short) explanation as to how I came to be an RA for EPEL is two-pronged. Initially, when I heard about the program, I was reminded of personal experiences with advanced planning — or the lack thereof. I saw first-hand how difficult it can be for families when the necessary planning documents are not in place. Additionally, I have always been interested in health care — oddly enough, it is ultimately why I chose to go into law. While certain legal documents like advanced directives and living wills are necessary for the elderly, they are applicable, and often essential, in the health care setting, too.
When I am not at school or work (I work as a law clerk at Dzenitis Newman, PLLC here in Louisville), you can find me playing with my dog, Lucy, or mountain biking at Cherokee Park! I am excited to begin researching advanced directives in Kentucky, how we as a state can make these documents more accessible and how Kentucky can increase its rates of estate planning.
