What was your route to the top? I joined Latham & Watkins straight out of UCLA Law School. As a new associate, I devoted myself to working really hard, building my expertise and developing strong business relationships. I discovered that I loved helping people create long term strategic partnerships, which led me to pursue my career forming investment fund partnerships among top global players and raising billions of dollars in capital for investment through these partnerships. I made partner at the law firm while pregnant with my first child, and had my second child a few years later. As my kids got older I took on greater leadership roles within the firm and expanded my law practice. In 2014, the firm’s Executive Committee asked me to spearhead the expansion of the firm’s innovative global diversity strategy for over 2,500 attorneys with the creation of the Diversity Leadership Committee. As Chair of the Committee, among many other initiatives, I helped the firm create its highly successful Women’s Leadership and Diversity Leadership Academies, which have each served hundreds of attorneys, seeking to inspire and propel women and diverse attorneys into leadership roles.
