An Atlanta native, Glenda Hatchett graduated from Mount Holyoke College and earned her law degree from Emory University School of Law. She worked for Delta Air Lines for almost 10 years, serving dual roles in both the legal and public relations departments. Ebony Magazine named Hatchett one of the "100 Best and Brightest Women in Corporate America."

Hatchett left Delta when she was appointed chief presiding judge of the Fulton County, Georgia, Juvenile Court and became known for her creative sentences. For her show, she added intervention segments to help litigants understand the implications of their actions and learn how to better handle problems. These reality-check experiences are shot on location around the country.

She was in Beaufort on Wednesday to speak to classes at TCL.
