As Sydney Ember profiles her in The New York Times, she not only is high profile. She also has an executive decision-making role: She is Gawker president.
The dual function some see as dangerous since it could compromise attorney-client privilege. She takes a hands-on role in matters regarding editorial content.
Three years ago, she joined Gawker. Her previous job was working in the legal department at Hearst. She is now 35 years old. She has a law degree and M.B.A. from the University of Michigan.
While in bankruptcy proceedings Gawker will continue operations. That means for now Dietrick still has a job. But if it is purchased in an auction, who knows if she will be asked to stay on or if she will want to.
Will all the media coverage she has received since "Hogan v. Gawker" went to trial help or hurt her career? Only time will tell.
