She has had prior experience managing attorneys in the Bay Area for a large-size defense firm, and then spent five years working for a national multi-office large self-insured employer. As litigation manager for this company, she helped to implement policies designed to keep a team of 30 defense attorneys on task and creating a program where they would report to her and ensure budgetary needs of the company remained the main focus. Coming from that background, she understands what insurance companies and employers are looking for in picking their legal team and has creative ideas on how to keep the bottom line as the focus.
