Meet Libby Willis
A spotlight on one of the professional team members who work for you at Nash Disability Law.
“We make a living by what we earn. We make a life by what we give.” That keen insight from Winston Churchill perfectly describes what motivates Libby Willis. When she’s not working as an Intake Paralegal at Nash Disability Law, Libby likes to volunteer whenever she can. Her favorite local nonprofit organizations include Lakeview Pantry, Center on Halsted, NAMI Chicago, StreetWise, One Tail at a Time, and Flowers for Dreams.
Libby also loves to try new restaurants. She says with a wry smile, “I made a pact with a former roommate to try each of the ‘Top Ten Burgers in America.’ So far, we‘ve only tried three.” She also loves to cook and bake at home.
Spending time with friends and family is equally important to her. She grew up just outside of St. Louis listening to Cardinals baseball games with her dad. She still listens to and watches every game she can.
Libby is passionate about issues like homelessness and housing discrimination. “[These] are very real issues for many individuals,” she says, “particularly within the aging population and the LBGTQ community. I would love to see an end to both of these concerns.” To help these two groups of people, Libby also supports SAGE (Services and Advocacy for GLBT Elders) and the American Society on Aging.
Libby’s obvious care and compassion for others fit perfectly for her work at Nash. Here is how she describes her responsibilities: “I talk with first-time callers and prospective clients of Nash Disability Law. I gather the information that helps our attorneys make a determination of whether or not we can help with an individual’s case. Our callers and clients have really amazing stories to tell, and I enjoy listening to these stories every day. I think that providing these individuals with the time and space to tell their stories is a small but important way of helping.”
