What are you passionate about?

Advancing women and diverse lawyers to the highest levels of the legal profession.

If you weren't a lawyer, you'd be?

A high school English teacher and youth soccer coach, and then a bookstore owner in retirement.

Favorite place you've traveled to:

It's a tie between New Zealand and Argentina; we visited both in 2019, and I am still holding on to those memories tightly!

Favorite Denver restaurant:
