I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley (Go Bears!) and a Juris Doctorate degree from Pepperdine University. During law school, I participated in the Special Education Advocacy Clinic and served as the Secretary of Advocates for Public Interest Law. I served as a law clerk at the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles in the Asian Pacific Islander Unit and at Neighborhood Legal Services-Los Angeles in the Housing Unit.

Prior to OCRA, I worked at a private law firm representing students and families. I am excited at the opportunity to serve as the CRA for Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center consumers and help consumers gain access to justice.
