Before law school, I worked for organizations supporting women’s rights movements in Sub-Saharan Africa and Mexico. Growing up on a farm gave me a deep love for the plant kingdom, and I can often be found tending my community garden plot or botanizing on trails throughout the Bay Area. I’m also a fan of backyard cinema.
