I have been active in FAWL as the Okaloosa chapter representative for several years and am so excited to get even more involved on the state level. If anyone in our community is interested in learning more about this association on the state or local level or needs information on how to become involved, I’m available. We do have several events upcoming in Orlando in June in conjunction with the Florida Bar Convention and it would be a great time for interested parties to participate with us,” said Jennifer Gutai Comella.
