You have been a member of WWCDA for many years, how have you seen the association change over the years and what most excites you about the future of WWCDA?
I have been a member for a long time and truly enjoy the camaraderie with the women in the organization. Watching WWCDA’s large growth over the past several years has been phenomenal and gratifying. To see so many women joining the organization demonstrates the power of the collective. The addition of numerous U.S. chapters has been great to see but the expansion of chapters throughout the world is truly exciting. The ability to meet and network with other women throughout the world is not something other legal organizations provide. I am excited to see the power the organization can provide to its members including more speaking engagement exposure, more personal recognition (Chambers, etc.) and working on achieving more women on the bench and other important positions.
Describe your current practice and what your ideal case looks like.
My current practice revolves around representing corporations and individuals who are either under investigation or indicted with fraud and other related white collar crimes. My ideal matter is conducting a corporate internal investigation and representing the company, if under investigation and obtaining a favorable result!
Tell us something about yourself that few people know.
Until two years ago, I was an NCAA Division I volleyball official. I officiated matches in numerous college conferences, the NCAA Tournament, Division II finals and essentially everything but the NCAA Division I Final Four. I played volleyball in college and officiating was a way to stay involved in a sport that I truly enjoy.
