A Californian by birth, a New York City gal by education and career, I’ve called Houston home for almost ten years.

In NYC, while practicing immigration law, I was privileged to interact with some of the most fascinating, foreign-born individuals anywhere.

Life events brought me to Houston, where even more life events have opened up windows I didn’t know existed and have paved ways of purpose and promise that are continuing to unfold.

A proud mom of a High School for the Performing and Visual Arts graduate, a grateful member of St. Paul’s Methodist Church choir, an honored member of Houston’s Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA Board of Directors, and currently assistant to a rockstar university professor, I continue to marvel at life’s awesome revelations.
