Law School: California Western School of Law
College: University of California, Santa Barbara
After graduating from California Western School of Law, I practiced both civil litigation and transactional law in San Diego, primarily focused on insurance defense, real estate and business. I worked in small- and medium-size private law firms for seven years prior to joining the Career and Professional Development Office at California Western School of Law. I am now responsible for all office operations and actively promote California Western to the legal community.
I had the fortune of practicing law with many exceptional San Diego lawyers for seven years. I started practicing medical and dental malpractice defense at Neil Dymott. I then moved to work with the Hughes Law Firm practicing construction defect defense. With Galuppo and Lacagnina and then with Gerson Law Firm, I practiced real estate and business law. Nine years ago, I returned to my alma mater to join the career and professional development office at California Western School of Law, where I serve as the assistant dean and work with the remarkable students and alumni of California Western.

I grew up in Los Angeles and went on to college at the University of California, Santa Barbara where I met my husband. We have been together 20 years this year and are kept busy with our 4-year-old and two dogs. I am thankful for them, my supportive parents and brother and his family and my family at California Western. I enjoy spending time with family and friends and practicing yoga, swimming, skiing and travelling.
