Tell us how you got into your field.
I was in Beijing when SARS hit (Covid was not my first rodeo). The city shut down. I grew bored. I decided to return to the US to attend law school. Because that is what verbose nerd types did back then when they had no earthly idea what they wanted to be when they grew up.
I started as a litigator at a large law firm. Loved it. Went in-house after my first child was born. Loved it. Naturally drifted over to legal operations right before it became a buzzword. Really loved it. Ended up writing and speaking on the subject (again, verbose nerd type). This resulted in a career in consulting, as well as founding a legal tech startup (still going strong).
