“Here’s a picture of me as the first woman member of the Washington State Trial Lawyer Association Board. It only happened because the President, John Lewis, insisted. He wanted me to be chair of the legislative committee because I had worked in the Stat senate three terms in college. I knew everyone and where all the bodies were buried. The WSTLA Board agreed with one hitch. I would not have a vote. I agreed. A foot in the door is easier than kicking it in, as I had to do in law school. It took a couple of years for us to get the vote.”
