Am a former San Franciso Public Defender who represented our youth and their families for over eight and a half years. Securing resources to meet their educational and mental health needs is of upmost importance to me and I am currently representing those with developmental needs. I serve on the CA State Bar's Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services to help meet the needs of those who make a dollar more than the federal income guidlines. Am very active in statewide and local politics. 

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe in the adage that we will be judged by how we treat our most vulnerable. I am particualarily interested in securing preventive services. If we can help our youth have a great start it will be a success for them and for all of us.
