humbled to be nominated by my fellow commissioners for the
opportunity to act as your President-Elect. It has been my
honor to serve for seven years as a commissioner and as an
ex-officio representative of the Women Lawyers of Utah. I
have prepared for this opportunity by working in leadership
on the Executive Committee, as chair for the 85th Anniversary
Event, and co-chair of the Awards Committee. I have also
participated in multiple committees including the Futures
Commission and the Summer Bar Convention Review Committee.
addition to my bar experience, I have leadership experience
as a former President of the Women Lawyers of Utah and as the
co-owner of Match and Farnsworth, a high-volume small firm.

outside of the traditional practice experience, who are often
under-represented in bar leadership. I will continue to share
my perspective while representing your concerns. I will work
to strengthen the profession and the value of bar membership.
I commit to diligently represent your needs within the Bar
and within the community. Thank you for considering my

mind as I listen and discuss items that come before the bar.
