Although I grew up Lexington, in town, my grandparents lived in Midway. From a very early age, I remember how much I loved it when my dad would take the “back roads” to go visit: Pisgah Pike or Old Frankfort. The stone fences and rolling farmland were so mesmerizing and the landscape seemed to be a part of me.
When I applied to law school, I wrote my entrance essay about conservation easements and protecting the Bluegrass. Somewhere along the way, I was sidetracked and ended up at a law firm in litigation. Very soon after, the stars aligned, and my dream job of protecting the Bluegrass landscape became available.
I love that my own daughter can enjoy the same viewshed that I did at her age when we made that same drive to Midway to see our family because of all of the acres permanently protected with BLC conservation easements!
