Why I Work at OneJustice:

I work at OneJustice because legal services organizations are key in ensuring a just and equitable society. With the number of low-income Californians who need assistance, legal services organizations need support and resources to better provide services to their communities. I want to ensure legal services staff have what they need to serve more people efficiently and effectively.

Professional Background: 

I graduated from Pomona College in 2002 with a B.A. in Psychology, and from Loyola Law School in 2008 with my J.D. While in law school, I was an Editor on Loyola’s Entertainment Law Review, and published an article entitled “Pencil Me In: The Use of Title IX and s. 1983 to Obtain Equal Treatment in High School Athletics Scheduling” in the January 2007 edition of The Modern American. After law school, I was an Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellow working on foreclosure and bankruptcy at Public Law Center, in Santa Ana, California. I stayed at PLC until 2022, working primarily on consumer law legal services and advocacy before becoming the Director of Legal

Something I Love:

I really love running outside, which is something I never thought I’d say as a former basketball player, and I don’t get to do it enough. I love live music. I love watching basketball and football (especially when my kids play). Thanks to my kids, I also love watching dance and gymnastics. I love to laugh and I teach my kids humor and kindness at every opportunity.
