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

Work with others to achieve “best fit” outcomes.

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

Danger; joy; hope

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

I have no short answer for this. Players in the industry will think to the extent to which the model allows it; what does the model allow?

What was your main driver to enter the legal industry?

Challenging myself
