Women in eDiscovery, a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization that brings together women interested in technology related to the legal profession, announced that Patti Zerwas has been named director of the South Central region.

Since its inception in 2007, Women in eDiscovery has grown from 30 members to thousands of members in 30 chapters worldwide. The organization provides women opportunities to help each other grow personally and professionally through leadership, education, networking support and national recognition. Membership is free, and its executive board, regional directors and chapter officers operate on a 100% volunteer basis.

Zerwas has been involved with Women in eDiscovery for many years. She has held numerous positions on the Houston chapter board: meetings director, assistant chapter director, chapter director and secretary. She was on the Speakers Committee for the inaugural WiE National Conference. Zerwas holds a CEDS certification and has been in eDiscovery and litigation technology since 2001, with a focus on project management and consulting. Zerwas is a discovery project manager at Haynes and Boone based out of the Houston office where she consults on, educates about and manages eDiscovery cases primarily for the Houston, Dallas, Washington, D.C., and London offices.

“I am honored to begin a new role as South Central regional director for Women in eDiscovery,” says Patti Zerwas. “The opportunities and support that WiE provides to women, both professionally and personally, are immeasurable. My time working with the Houston chapter has been a wonderful experience, and I look forward to continuing to share my experiences and helping guide and grow the South Central region chapters.”

“On behalf of Beth Finkle and Jackie Rosborough, I am delighted to welcome Patti to the regional board,” says Aileen Borders, executive director of Women in eDiscovery. “Patti’s versatile experience working with the Houston chapter will be an asset to the region as she collaborates and guides them through innovative strategies to build strong networking activities and the growth of the memberships.”
