1. Why did you become a lawyer?

My older sister, who is an attorney, goaded me by saying I could not make it through law school. 

2. If I wasn’t practicing law, I would be…

A scientist. My undergraduate is in science and I was working at UCSF in one of its cancer research laboratories preparing to go to veterinarian school when my sister threw down her challenge. 

3. What keeps you busy outside of Hanson Bridgett?

My four-year old son.

4. Are you active in any organizations?

I’m a volunteer with San Francisco’s Court Appointed Special Advocate program, working with amazing foster youth.
