As a lawyer, she has worked in a various fields, ranging from civil litigation to tax planning, and for several years specialized in legal research and writing. A Buddhist and a meditator, she has a broad array of interests, including art and architecture, kayaking, qigong and yoga, and fixing up a modernist house created by her father, local architect Mason Hicks.
