Lynch star­ted her un­der­gradu­ate stud­ies as an act­ing ma­jor. But, she says, “it only took one year to real­ize that my strengths laid some­where else.” She worked for former Rep. John Shade­gg, R-Ar­iz., be­fore at­tend­ing law school in 2000. Now as coun­sel in charge of law-en­force­ment agen­cies and the fed­er­al crim­in­al code, she has been on a roller-coast­er ride this year, fa­cing leg­al ques­tions on everything from the IRS probe to the NSA leaks. Lynch, 39, keeps the com­mit­tee­carbed up by reg­u­larly bring­ing in her home-baked goods.
