Julie Park was profiled in Law.com’s “How I Made It” series, discussing her work as office managing partner for the San Diego office, the impact she’d like to have as a firm leader, and what she would tell her younger self based on what she knows now.
“What my partner and friend Haima Marlier said a few weeks ago really stuck with me,” Julie said. “I’d tell my younger self: You belong here and you have what it takes to do the job. As a young woman of color, I felt like an outsider since there weren’t people who looked like me in leadership and management roles. But here I am! And I’ve seen and felt palpable change during my time at the firm – leadership is much more diverse, and I think it’s really important for people to have a wide variety of role models to look up to.”
