I am not your typical lawyer. First of all, I don’t have the mindset of the typical lawyer, and I certainly haven’t had the usual career path. I came to my legal career after being a fashion designer in New York and moving away for family reasons. It’s hard to be a fashion designer anywhere else, it really is.

Shreya will challenge you to a dance-off to settle disputes and describes herself as a “third culture kid.” She is originally a child of the global economy and knows too much about the oil & gas industry. She’s pleased with Seattle, but often travels back to Houston, TX for LayRoots and for the family business she started with her father. She started her career as a creative writer and ballet dancer, but found it difficult to achieve much success (while alive) in the fields if no one sees your work. After a brief stint as a college radio DJ, she resigned herself to working as a Chemical Engineer in the Oil & Gas world of Houston before going to law school.
