Without mentioning your job title, how would you describe what it is you do now (whether at home, work, in the community, etc.)?

I have been very fortunate in my career to have time and effort invested in me by generous professionals, so it is now my privilege to use the skills that I have obtained to give my clients a voice and do for them what they cannot do themselves.

What are the first three words you think of when you hear the word ‘diversity’?

Embrace all differences.

What do you think it will take to develop truly diverse thinking within the legal industry?

Teaching. Tact. Tolerance.

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

The intellectual challenge of mastering the law and the satisfaction of using that knowledge to help others.
