Donna Paulsen from Suits. In recognition of Administrative Professionals’ Day, this is my tribute to my newest idol,
She is the legal assistant that all us administrative professionals should aspire to. She has her finger on the pulse of the law firm of Suits and is ridiculously good at her job. She’s keeps an awareness of all things and her fiery red head is a house full of knowledge and wit.
She is the legal assistant to hot shot lawyer, Harvey Specter and jokingly refers to herself as his wife because of how she takes care of him. Some have wrongfully assumed that her relationship with Harvey means she is in love with him, but she’s so far above that. She knows Harvey inside and out, far better than any lover, because she understands the way he thinks. In fact, one of her greatest skills is her ability to read other people and assess them honestly. If she hates you, you will know, but that does not mean her hatred is blind. She can see the good in even the worst people and subtly suggest they make use of it when necessary.
She’s fiercely loyal to the point of figuratively taking a bullet to protect the people she cares about and the people they care about. She knows when someone needs a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen or a slap in the face.
Oh, and to top it all off, she’s a geek.
Kneel before ZOD? Naw. He's too busy kneeling before Donna.
