What was your route to the top? The route to the top was certainly not a simple ladder. It would have been easy if I could have just put one foot in front of the other and made my way up, rung by rung. Instead, I had to do it my way which often felt like scaling a rocky mountain with my bare hands. As someone who is first in her family to go to college, let alone graduate or law school, my career has been one of overcoming and one of survival. No one ever told me I could do it. In fact, they often told me the opposite. But that is certainly where sheer will and grit help to propel you forward. My goal now is just to ensure more women will follow.
