In this episode, I am excited to have on Katy Young to continue our parenting series on what her IVF treatment journey looked like while managing her firm and caseload.

Katy represents plaintiffs and defendants in business and real estate disputes, including matters for cannabis industry litigants. She graduated from University of the Pacific, and then she went to University of San Francisco for law school. She is a Northern California Super Lawyer Rising Star for 2014 through 2019. In 2018, she was named to Benchmark Litigation's 40 & Under Hot List. She is also the President of the National Cannabis Bar Association.

Topics Covered

  • Both how she found herself working in cannabis law and what that growing segment of law looks like from the inside.
  • What infertility treatments look like while practicing law, and dealing with the associated impatience while having a breast cancer scare that postponed her treatments.
  • How she balanced running her firm, managing her caseload, and the emotional energy that it takes to go through IVF at the same time.
