I am a southern California native who, after living in several wonderful places across the U.S., happily ended up back in my home state. I love San Diego’s sunny weather, friendly people, and endless number of things to do outside. Add to that San Diego’s emerging restaurant scene and world famous craft breweries and there’s no place I’d rather live. That being said, I love traveling, exploring new cultures, and meeting new people.
I’ve played pretty much every sport there is, including Division I women’s soccer at Tulane University in New Orleans. I am fiercely competitive and welcome a challenge. Whether it’s on the pitch or writing a winning brief, I strive to come out on top of the competition. I believe strongly in teamwork and collaboration as the means for achieving top results.
Working with hospitality clients has been a natural fit for me. I enjoy partnering with human resources professionals and managers in navigating California’s employment laws, as well as working through the day to day challenges of managing people. I am grateful to be practicing in an area of law that allows me to work directly with colleagues and clients on a daily basis. It is truly the personal aspect of my job that makes me love what I do. And when it comes time to fight the good fight, I couldn’t choose a better set of individuals to represent.
