Rebecca White Berch – Chief justice, Arizona Supreme Court Chief Justice

White Berch was appointed to the Arizona Supreme Court in 2002 and has been chief justice since 2009.

Surprising fact: “I officiated at a wedding for 100 couples on the steps of the Supreme Court on February 14, 2012, the centennial of Arizona’s statehood — and Valentine’s Day.”

Biggest challenge: “Each new job has posed challenges that seemed, at that time, to have been the biggest I’d faced … Patience, humor, hard work, good advisors and good friends are the keys to meeting such challenges.”
