Pat Mulroy is a rarity among the powerbrokers of water. She's a woman and she majored in German literature; her counterparts generally worked their way up through science and engineering.

Now, 35 years later, she hopes those opportunities doesn't dry up for the generation of Nevadans just beginning their careers.
