“Even though I am from a town smaller than Thomasville, it was easy adjusting to life here. Everyone was friendly and welcoming to me. Now that I have been here for several years, I hope that I can take that same welcoming spirit and apply it to the clients I meet and see every day,” says Destiny Bostic, Legal Assistant at Whitehurst, Blackburn & Warren.
Destiny began her tenure at WBW in August 2017 in the receptionist role. However, her journey to WBW began in Rushville, Indiana and brought her to Thomasville while she was in high school.
“The town I grew up in was like Pelham is to Thomasville. I moved here when I was 15. Thomas County Central was much larger than the high school I attended previously. It was scary because everyone already knew each other, but I became comfortable pretty quickly because everyone was friendly and welcoming to me.”
After graduating high school, Destiny attended Southern Regional Technical College to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Care and Education. Shortly after having her first child though, she realized that she did not want to be a teacher.
“After discovering that teaching was not my passion, I heard about the opening at WBW through friends who worked there, and I decided to apply,” Destiny explains. “I never thought about law as a career. But once I got here, I saw that I was good at it and I really enjoy it.”
Destiny’s responsibilities and areas of expertise include criminal and personal injury law as well as in-house booking.
Before her employment began at WBW, Destiny worked at a local car dealership as a business development representative. She was tasked with cold calling potential customers and inquiring about vehicle trade-ins.
“Through that job, I learned how to communicate with people I don’t know about sensitive subjects,” Destiny says. “That has certainly helped me at WBW. I am able to connect with our clients and discuss subjects that are incredibly important and confidential.”
Destiny is married with one son, a step-daughter, and another son on the way. When she is not at work, she can be found spending time with her kids, going to the beach or enjoying her son’s new hobby – skateboarding at the skate park.
Destiny is yet another member of the team waiting to welcome you into the WBW family.
“I hope to retire from here. A coworker recently did that. She worked here the majority of her career, and I want that, too.”
