    If I recall correctly, Ms. Hines received her law degree in 2007. Sorry, but 4 years and now general counsel?

      Actually she’s only been admitted in MN since 07 but she’s been a lawyer for longer than that She graduated from Duke and then Michigan and has been practicing in other states until 07. Her husband is an exec at General Mills, so I think they’ve been following his career from city to city until then.

      Actually you recall incorrectly. She has been practicing law since 2002 and is a Mitchell. If you don’t know what that means – you should.
