A former clerk for both the honorable Merrick Garland on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit and Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court, Gray also served as a senior counsel to President Barack Obama and in other roles in the White House from 2009-2014.

Having joined WBA in September 2021, we learn that curiosity is what drives Gray in her role as chief legal officer.
