On a professional level, I am inspired by the dedication of the Commission's staff and faculty in this important work, as well as the energy and courage attorneys show every day in representing survivors of domestic and sexual violence. On a personal level, I am inspired by my three children who make me proud by their words and actions every day.

All of those people in this country who continue to strive for what is right, and during times that make it difficult to do so. Their strength and dedication is truly inspiring.
