I attended college at the University of California, San Diego, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Clinical Psychology. I received my Juris Doctor at University of California, Davis, King Hall.
As a proud Latina, I was actively involved in La Raza La Student’s Association (LRLSA) during all three years of my law school education. I was Treasurer of LRLSA during my 2L year, and chaired the LRLSA’s first scholarship committee in my 3L year.
I have a passion for domestic violence representation, and have worked with survivors of rape and domestic violence for over ten years in varying capacities. During my time at King Hall, I represented survivors of domestic violence at the Family Protection and Legal Assistance Clinic as a certified law student. Additionally, I spent my post-bar clerkship at Family Violence Law Center in Oakland doing exclusively Petitioner-side Restraining Order work before moving into private practice.
I have worked as an associate attorney in both Contra Costa County at the Whatley Law Firm and in Alameda County at the Law Offices of Tracey C. Wapnick. I have practiced Family Law exclusively since my graduation from law school.
In my free time, I enjoy the company of my partner and our two toddlers. My hobbies include social justice activism, and pretending that I am a foodie by sampling all of the delicious restaurants that the Bay Area has to offer.
