MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: MEGHAN KEMPF

How long have you been a member of the Austin Bar and what is your favorite thing about the organization?

I have been a member since 2014, and I love all of the different ways to meet and engage with other members.

What do you like most about being in the legal field?

Helping to empower clients through an understanding of the law. It is pretty awesome to watch a person or program reach their full potential.

If you weren’t a lawyer what would you be?

That’s a hard one! Probably a photographer, I love to travel and see new places.

What’s the craziest job (other than lawyer) that you’ve had?

Tour guide at UT, I know a lot of useless trivia!

If you were a character in a movie or a TV show, which character would you be?

CJ Cregg from the West Wing

What have you been doing in the community, and how is that making your world a better place to be?

My favorite time every week is the evening I spend at the Austin Children’s Shelter, it puts everything into perspective for me about what really matters. I’m also on the board of directors for Habitat Young Professionals and we work to raise awareness for housing affordability in Central Texas.
