Becky shared: “I was raised on my family’s farm in rural Kansas where the sharing of opinions (arguing) was allowed and sometimes encouraged. This was further encouraged by my government and history teachers in high school, so of course I had to find a profession that paid me to argue.” What an exciting start of career!

Becky’s greatest achievement is raising a daughter that is comfortable with her intelligence and independence. The next greatest achievement is being a successful female criminal defense lawyer for over 23 years.
