Now nearly a decade ago, I was lucky to be among Ms. JD’s “founding mothers.” In 2009 I became Ms. JD’s first Executive Director. After a great experience volunteering for Ms. JD while I was at UCLA School of Law and a judicial clerk the chambers of Chief Judge Jon P. McCalla in Memphis, TN, it was a real labor of love.
In 2011, having successfully transitioned Ms. JD from an inspirational, but fledgling, school project to a nationally recognized, ground-breaking non-profit, I left Ms. JD to join the Los Angeles litigation boutique Bird Marella.
I now maintain a varied practice representing corporate clients in complex civil litigation and and white collar defense. I remain an Emerita of Ms. JD’s Board of Directors and a frequent speaker on issues pertaining to women in the profession.
