Pro Bono Justice Program Coordinator
Why I work at OneJustice:
I value OneJustice’s commitment to transforming the civic legal aid system in California by leveraging the resources of the private and non-profit sectors in order to better serve the most vulnerable. OneJustice also provides me with me a broad exposure to the legal aid landscape in our state and allows me to apply my skills in a way that positively impacts those most disenfranchised by our legal system.
Prior to joining the OneJustice team, I served as a Fellow with the City and County of San Francisco where I was able to exercise my passion for public service and gain tremendous insight into the mechanisms of local government. My interest in legal aid stems from my experience with assisting self-represented litigants in the Superior Court of Los Angeles as an undergrad.
In addition to legal aid work, I have also been involved in policy advocacy and research around environmental protection and sustainability. I have found many parallels between my work in legal aid and environmental protection. These parallels have made me realize the importance of promoting equity and ensuring fair access to resources.
I earned my B.A. in Political Science and Environmental Studies from UCLA.
I really love:
I love to travel to new places, both near and far, this includes going on hikes or visiting a new destination abroad. I also really enjoy swimming, reading political news, discovering new music, going to different coffee shops, and improving my cooking skills.
