I was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and American father. My mother died when I was one and my father abandoned me, leaving me with my Japanese grandmother. I was adopted at 5. Before I was six, my adoptive father began sexually molesting me. Looking back, I should have turned into an alcoholic, drug addict, prostitute or been dead at an early age. But none of that happened. Instead, at a young age, I had a chance to watch Perry Mason, a TV law drama about a criminal defense attorney. Each week, people accused of murder came to him because he was the only person they could count on and trust. Because I had no one to trust, I started trusting Perry Mason and I vowed I’d become Perry Mason for others. And that’s exactly what I did. I became a lawyer and I went to great lengths to make sure my clients felt cared for. I used the system I created to keep me moving forward, to reach my goal to become a lawyer and later an athlete.
Today, I am an Attorney | Athlete | Speaker | Advisor | 2X Bestselling Author. I'm a Legal Ethics - Trust-Building Expert. I help lawyers (and any other business owner) build iron-clad trust with clients, turning clients into champions so attorneys can build thriving practices without resorting to unethical advertising or half-baked advertising that doesn't work. I'm also a Productivity Expert. As an athlete, I've managed to achieve goals beyond my dreams and have applied those skills to business. I speak on many topics, but at the core of everything I do is recognition of vulnerability as the fuel to moving forward and upward in life, sports and business. Last but not least: I'm the luckiest girl in the world.
