Ellen Roper was Circuit Court Judge for 28 years and served as a special judge on the Missouri Supreme Court and Missouri Court of Appeals Western District. Christine Carpenter served on the 13th Judicial Circuit Court for 18 years and has been a leader in both Missouri and the U.S. in the field of recovery courts.
