PUF's Pat McMurray: What was the path that led you to this job?
Dena Wiggins: I'm from North Carolina. A long time ago, during the Watergate hearings, my senator was Sam Ervin. I was fascinated by watching the Watergate hearings and seeing Senator Sam preside. That was my first inkling that going into something that involved law and politics would be a path that I would want to follow.
Fast forward a lot of years. I stayed interested in politics and came to Washington to go to graduate school in political science. Graduate school was not my cup of tea. I thought it was too theoretical and not enough hands-on.
I had considered going to law school, but wasn't really sure that's what I wanted to do. After I didn't like political science as a graduate program, I decided I wanted to try law school.
I figured, if I'm going to go to law school at twenty-seven or twenty-eight years old, I ought to find out if I really like it. I don't want to just burn three or four years of my time and a lot of money.
