Winky was greatly influenced by her mother who, during the 1970s, was one of the few women working in a traditionally-male environment and started a union to fight hard for workers’ rights. In 1981, Winky joined the U.S. Navy and was assigned to the USS McKee, the first Navy ship built for both men and women sailors, in Point Loma. During her Navy career, Winky received a Good Conduct Medal and the Battle Efficiency “E” award. While in the military, she was certified in Military Justice Clerical Procedures, Career Information and Counseling, and Leadership and Management Education and Training, and was honorably discharged in April 1988.
That same month, Winky began her legal career as a secretary working for the nation’s largest plaintiff’s class action firm, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd (formerly Lerach Coughlin and later Milberg Weiss) in its San Diego and San Francisco offices. She is a graduate of the University of San Diego’s Paralegal Program and received her American Bar Association Approved Paralegal Certificate on May 9, 2013. Winky is also a California Notary Public.
