Sharon Self is a litigation paralegal with over thirty-one years of experience. She began her career as a federal court clerk in the Eastern District of California, working in both the bankruptcy court and, thereafter, the Federal District Court.

She was instrumental in raising $31 million dollars for the Super Efficient Refrigerator Program which was used as direct incentive to the manufacturer to bring to market new technology. This project received international acclaim which business model was subsequently used to bring new technologies to market.
