Beverly Wood, a 56-year-old San Rafael resident, has been a commissioner since 2005. Full judges are appointed by a governor or elected by voters; court commissioners are named by full judges to help with the caseload.
Wood was named to fill a vacant seat created last year when the state judiciary converted one commissioner's position to a full judgeship in Marin.
...
Wood earned a bachelor's degree at the University of California at Berkeley and a law degree at the University of San Francisco School of Law. She worked at three law firms between 1983 and 2005.
