Favorite memory from Santa Clara

  • Meeting such good friends, who were inspiringly driven and warmhearted. Whether relaxing with them after that last final of the semester or going over outlines in the library, without them (and my family), I couldn’t have successfully finished three tough years of law school. 
  • Santa Clara Computer and High Technology Law Journal, Lead Symposium Editor
  • Student Intellectual Property Law Association, Member
  • Northern California Innocence Project, Clinical Student
  • Fresh Lifelines for Youth, Juvenile Justice Intern

My hobbies and interests

  • Traveling, especially to Europe where I spent my elementary school years.
  • Playing with my 12-year-old cockapoo Marco Polo; he enjoys belly rubs and long walks.
  • Visiting new restaurants and trying to learn to be a better cook. I’ve mastered making pasta from scratch but everything else could use a little more work.

Things I am good at…

  • Being open-minded and resourceful.
  • Produced, wrote and edited for six years at The Washington Post so I know how to work in intense, deadline-driven environments.
  • Working with Congress for a number of years, I’ve learned how to patiently navigate chaos—educating, collaborating and negotiating with diverse groups that do not necessarily see eye to eye.
  • Was left wing for my undergrad women’s ice hockey club. Quickly realized that actions, which may appear effortless, may actually be quite difficult and the importance of being a team player.
