Dewey is a partner in Hardin and Coffin LLP, a full-service civil litigation firm that focuses on civil litigation defense and employment law. She is a member of several local organizations, including the Santa Barbara Bar Association and Santa Barbara Women Lawyers. She will be instrumental in NAWBO-SB program development and will act as one of the legal advisers for the chapter.

Kaye, a newly elected board director, is a pain management specialist who has built a successful practice in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles during the past 30 years. She studied yoga extensively before pursuing healing and pain management as a profession. She received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology and health psychology, and she works alongside physicians to treat clients with various medical conditions.

Large is the founder and principal at Deco Marketing Group, a full-service marketing consultancy geared toward small- and medium-size businesses. She will act as co-chair of NAWBO-SB’s Marketing Committee through which she will utilize her experience in marketing and business development to promote chapter events.

Tipolt has been an associate of State Farm for more than 23 years and has a passion for finance. She is involved with the National Association of Insurance & Financial Advisors and co-founded the Santa Barbara County Law Enforcement Officer Wives Association. She represents the chapter’s satellite office in Santa Ynez and will focus on outreach in the valley.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
