Rotarian Maureen O'Leary presented a thumbnail sketch to the Club at Tuesday's meeting.  Maureen is an attorney and shareholder at Willms, S.C., a law firm in Thiensville with expertise in the practice areas of Estate Planning, Business Law, Tax Law, and Elder Law.  Maureen grew up in Brookfield Wisconsin and completed her undergraduate degree at Carroll College. She then attended Marquette University Law School prior to joining Willms, S.C. after graduation in 2008, where she became a partner in 2014.  
Maureen told the miraculous story of the birth of her daughter Jacqueline, who was born at 23 weeks weighing around one pound.  After being told by every doctor that her daughter would not survive or would have significant disabilities, Maureen and her husband Jeremy continued to have faith. Two and a half years later, Jacqueline is a healthy toddler with no signs of disability or delay.  Maureen shared photo albums from the hospital to put into perspective how small a one pound baby really is, and the true miracle that is her family. Maureen additionally shared that she and her husband are expecting again in October.
