Jen Kash talks about the burnout that comes with 3500 billable hour years, how she left the firm to get healthy, and starting her second act in the Caribbean
Jen Kash is a former partner at Quinn Emanuel in San Francisco, where she practiced for nearly two decades. But the years of stress and 3500 billable hours took their toll, and she ultimately took a sabbatical that has turned permanent. She’s currently living in St. Vincent and the Grenadines where she’s started a non-profit called Virgin Independence, which helps transitional youth in finding jobs and training. She is also in the early stages of building a retreat for lawyers in need of support managing their stress in healthy ways. Jen is amazingly honest and upfront about her own struggles with burnout and dependency and gives us an important lesson in the very real health risks of pushing yourself too far.
