Hindi Greenberg, secretary
Many know Hindi Greenberg through the theatre reviews she writes for The Union newspaper or her volunteerism or board memberships at The Center for the Arts, Music in the Mountains, Bear Yuba Land Trust, The Center for the Arts, Community Asian Theater of the Sierra (CATS), Welcome Club of Nevada County and InConcert Sierra.
However, she grew up in Minneapolis and graduated from the University of Minnesota, then worked for the U.S. government in Germany for two years. Afterwards, she moved to San Francisco and obtained her law degree from U.C. California, Hastings College of the Law. She was a trial lawyer in San Francisco for ten years, then retired from law and founded Lawyers in Transition in 1985 to provide information and resources to help law students and lawyers identify and move forward into new career choices both in and outside law. She also wrote the best-selling book, “The Lawyer’s Career Change Handbook.”
When Hindi isn’t running her consulting business or volunteering, she participates with various hiking and snowshoeing groups, attends numerous concert, opera and theater performances in Nevada County and San Francisco, collects eclectic art and jewelry, tends her garden, remodels her house, enjoys movies, listens to music of all kinds, bird watches, stargazes, works on her novel, throws pottery and, in her own words, “samples excellent chocolate far too often.”
Hindi has a love for a wide variety of music. Although she neither plays an instrument nor sings, she loves classical (especially the Baroque and Renaissance periods and vocal harmonies), bluegrass, Dixieland, reggae, blues, county & western, jazz, folk, singer-songwriter and early rock & roll. Just not heavy metal or heavy rap.
