Until 2018, she served as the Chief Circuit Mediator for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. There she led a staff of eight professional mediators, mediated cases on appeal, and served as chair of the Federal Judicial Center’s Advisory Committee on Executive Education. Prior to her appointment as Chief Circuit Mediator, she served as a Ninth Circuit Mediator for eighteen years. She has mediated over 3,000 cases.
