FIRST BIG BREAK:

At 19, I was hired as a temp employee in the corporate legal department of a small telecom company to index the file room. From that start, I have worked my way up to my current position.

SURPRISING FACT:

I spent most of my formative years practicing and teaching martial arts and am a three-time World Champion in the art of Tang Soo Do.

REMEMBER ME FOR:

Making my little circle of the world a better place. Whether its through the organizations I volunteer with or giving someone a reason to smile, I just want to leave a positive impact on my circle of influence.

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN WOMEN:

Authenticity. It is refreshing and inspiring to meet a woman confident enough in herself to be her true self. Knowing your truth as a woman is often a difficult journey, and I admire any woman who has figured it out.

ADVICE TO OTHERS:

It’s cliché, but “trust the process.” I knew from a young age I wanted to be a lawyer; my path wasn’t as direct as I would have liked, but I stuck it out and here I am, living my dream.
