While working at the courthouse, Jolene continued her legal education and obtained her certificate in Paralegal Studies from Phoenix College, an ABA approved paralegal program, and she looks forward to expanding her paralegal education by becoming a certified paralegal through the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA).
