What was your route to the top? Becoming a lawyer seemed like a natural fit. I’ve always been good at writing, analysis and oral arguments. I would have gone into science but girls were not encouraged to do that. I still toy with the idea of medical school after I retire. I focused on becoming a partner when I entered law school and I never lost sight of that goal. Most women would say you make tremendous sacrifices to achieve this level and it did. In addition to sheer determination, extremely hard work and being very good at what you do, it means having to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and move forward when obstacles appear in your way. Never quit and never say die.
