Margaret Christensen is the definition of an inspiring leader. With her legal experience in construction and business contract law, she approached the Indiana Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors Association to work with contractors on legal matters and has been a featured presenter at the group’s convention. Meg’s passion for helping others extends into various organizations, including Trusted Mentors.

In 2012, I’d like to
have a happy, healthy baby girl in July.

The best advice I could give a recent law school graduate is
stay in touch with your law school and undergraduate classmates. They’ll turn out to be your best clients, referral sources and peer mentors.

The three words that best describe me are
curious, optimistic and engaged.

My long-term career goal is
balance.

If I weren’t an attorney, I’d be
a lobbyist or other legislative professional.

My escape from work is
Pilates and ice cream.

My mentor has taught me
to slow down and handle things one at a time.

In the movie about my life
Jennifer Garner would play me because she has a balanced life and doesn’t take herself too seriously.

  1. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
