The common theme in my personal and professional life can be embodied in one word - empowerment. I am passionate about empowering those around me. In my legal practice, I am passionate about setting up business ventures and nonprofits so that they can thrive and maximize their successes. In my community, I work with a diverse population to further personal empowerment and life fulfillment. I volunteer as a mentor to young people through Youth Mentors, Inc. Through this nonprofit organization, I mentor and facilitiate dialogues for the young ladies in juvenile hall. I am also an Introduction Leader with Landmark Education. Landmark Education offers a diverse array of programs designed to cause powerful breakthrough's in people's lives that allow them to live the life that they have always dreamed of.
In my free time, I love to dance, read and cultivate my spiritual practice. You'll likely find me letting loose on the dance floor, curled up with a good book or enjoying my time with friends and family. I also have an appreciation for thought-provoking artwork.
