Willa Carpenter, the firm’s Human Resources Liaison, was highlighted in “River Region’s Journey” magazine last month. Starting with the firm in 1993, Willa grew up in Mississippi as a pastor’s daughter with a very strong relationship with the Lord. Her peaceful nature and nurturing spirit, both spiritual gifts that she thanks her parents for, help her bridge the gap between supervisors and their staff by offering godly counsel and prayer for those who need it.
Willa began at Beasley Allen as a receptionist, which allowed her to interact on a personal level with the lawyers and staff from day to day. Once struggling lawyers and staff began approaching her for prayer and encouragement regularly, we recognized that she needed to change her job title and location. Willa then became the Human Resources Liaison for Beasley Allen. One of her many duties in this position allows her to organize the firm’s weekly devotion luncheon. On each Thursday at noon, employees are given the opportunity to listen to God’s word and also enjoy a prepaid meal together. While this event is optional and not requested by the firm’s management, it’s extremely important. Willa told River Region’s Journey:
It is humbling to see how God has blessed our law firm with such wonderful attorneys and staff. Our Board of Directors are generous, Christian men who have consistently provided for the needs of our employees and their families. Faith works by love–loving God means loving people–not in word only, but in deed.
Willa has spent 21 years with the firm. Before working for Beasley Allen, she worked for Durr Fillauer in the building at 218 Commerce St. Greg Allen and I bought the building for use by the law firm. Willa tells folks that when we bought the building, she came along as part of the deal, and began working as the firm’s receptionist. I met Willa when Greg and I first went through the building before buying it. I saw something in her eyes that told me that this woman “was special.” To this day, Willa continues to work in the very same building, but in a totally different role. She now brings folks people together in the name of Jesus Christ. Look for a copy of River Region’s Journey magazine to read the full article on Willa Carpenter. It will be a tremendous blessing!
