Tina Chin

Senior Director, Legal

Cisco Systems, Inc.

I manage a team of lawyers and help my company solve legal and business problems, by giving advice on technology law, and writing contracts for customers who want to buy Cisco’s products.

Cisco is a company that makes equipment and software to create internet networks for companies, schools, and communities. I love solving problems and supporting people in their growth and development.

I spend a lot talking to different people to understand problems that need to be solved, and then brainstorming how to solve the problem.

I needed to go to college and law school to do my current job.

I would like to continue to have different experiences, both in my job and outside of work, so that I can continue to grow and learn.

I am fueled by people, so I love spending time with my family and friends. I love a great story and get hooked on good books, movies, and TV shows. I also enjoy time in my garden.

"I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do." ~ Edward Everett Hale
