How has your life experience made you the leader you are today?
I was fortunate to have attended an all-girls high school. Though at the time I did not realize the leadership skills they were fostering, in reflecting I see how big of an impact a single sex education made on my life. I am confident to arrive as the only woman in the boardroom and speak my mind.


How has your previous employment experience aided your position at Novitas, US Inc?
I can best help clients and their attorneys because I have first hand experience as a matrimonial attorney. I know there is a huge need for divorce funding. In my own practice, I saw clients that had a nice happy lifestyle, but because of a change at home became consumed by worry and fear. They questioned how they were going to afford to maintain their lifestyle during the divorce. Many had given up their careers to raise their children. They would ask me as their attorney how would they find a job and for the immediate concern, how could they even afford to retain my firm. I can see both sides, one from the attorney perspective, having to run a business and the possibility of growing accounts receivables. As well as the client, how could they afford proper representation when their spouse "controlled the purse strings?"
