Hometown: Portland, Ore.
Year you joined DWT: 1990
How you describe your work to a kid: I help people work out their problems in front of a judge.
Diversity hero: So many people have influenced the way I see and think about things, including my parents, teachers, classmates, and others both younger and older than me.
Why you serve on the diversity committee: People without “real world” experience will always struggle with diversity. Our goal should be to help fill the gaps. I think my personal background and work history will help.
Personal goal in five years: Get closer to figuring out what I want to be when I grow up, and staying personally and professionally satisfied in the interim.
