About Me

I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Product Design, and went to Santa Clara University School of Law.  At Santa Clara University School of Law she focused my studies on Intellectual Property, Telecommunications Law and Contracts.  After law school, my interests broadened and now I take on business law, contracts, bankruptcy, and immigration cases.

When I'm not working, I like hiking and spending time with my family.
