Highlighted in “River Region’s Journey” magazine this November is Beasley Allen’s very own Human Resources Liaison – Willa Carpenter. Starting with the firm in 1993, Mrs. Carpenter grew up 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.
Mrs. Carpenter began at Beasley Allen as a receptionist, which allowed her to interact on a personal level with the attorneys and staff from day-to-day. Once struggling attorneys and staff began approaching her for prayer and encouragement regularly, she 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 lunch, where employees are given the opportunity to listen to God’s word and eat a prepaid meal together.
“It is humbling to see how God has blessed our law firm with such wonderful attorneys and staff,” Mrs. Carpenter told River Region’s Journey. “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.”
Mrs. Carpenter also thanks Beasley Allen principal and founder Jere Beasley for her 21 years at the firm. Before working for Beasley Allen, Mrs. Carpenter worked for Durr Fillauer at 218 Commerce St., which would later be bought by Mr. Beasley to build the law firm. When Mr. Beasley bought the 218 Commerce St. building, he also opted to buy Mrs. Carpenter as his receptionist, too. To this day, she continues to work in the same building, bringing people together in the name of Christ.
