The September #MilitaryMatters #ProBonoSpotlight belongs to a Kutak Rock attorney with a heart of gold, Destiny Bounds. Through her firm's encouragement and support of her pro bono efforts, she has helped 11 veterans and military service members since April of this year, accumulating an astounding 120+ pro bono hours.
Destiny has several close friends who have served and continue to serve in all branches of the military. She has always had much admiration for those who serve our country and is so thankful for their sacrifices. Military Matters is just one way she is able to honor and give back to them.
From a young age, Destiny told her family and friends she was going to be a lawyer. She then followed through on that statement becoming the first in her family to go to college, let alone obtain an advanced degree. Her commitment to helping others started as a child, while volunteering with her parents. In addition to her efforts with Military Matters and Kutak Rock's Adopt-a-Neighborhood program, Destiny is also very involved in her church, Nexus Church. She helps educate, equip, and place volunteers in outreach programs with Children's Mercy Hospital, Kansas City Rescue Mission Women's Shelter, and several others.
When Destiny isn't engaged in charitable activities, she enjoys spending time with her two nieces and her 10-year-old Havanese dog. She is a life-long volleyball player with a newfound inspiration for gold, sparked primarily after joining a law firm. She has a soft spot in her heart for all dog parks and unique thrift stores.
