About Sharon D. Nelson
Though I am still an active lawyer, I spend most of my time in the IT, cybersecurity and digital forensics worlds as the President of Sensei Enterprises, Inc.. As I say, I don't work - I get paid to play.
As I write this, I am the co-author of 18 books published by the American Bar Association, all on the three topics mentioned above. Workaholic that I am, I've co-authored hundreds of articles with my husband and Sensei's Vice President, John Simek. We also frequently lecture on all three topics. We've lectured in almost all the states, in Canada, Paris, Rome and Madrid - even on a cruise ship. Not a bad life!
I have had the honor of serving as the President of the Virginia State Bar, President of the Fairfax Bar Assn. and President of the Fairfax Law Foundation. Within the American Bar Assn., I've served three years in its House of Delegates, three years on the ABA's Cybersecurity Legal Task Force and have chaired the ABA TECHSHOW - a fond memory indeed.
We have six children and ten grandchildren. The children and grandchildren are the best part of life - but boy oh boy, we love our work too.
