After college, I moved to San Diego to attend law school at the University of San Diego School of Law. I started working with families and children by doing clinical internships and policy work with the Children’s Advocacy Institute at the University San Diego School of Law.
I was admitted to the State Bar of California as a licensed attorney in December of 2000. I have worked in the public sector for the Department of Child Support Services and the San Diego County Public Defender’s Office.
As a public defender, I represented children and parents in Juvenile Dependency Court, children in Juvenile Delinquency Court, and adults in misdemeanor and felony Criminal Court.
