Biography


After graduating in 2010, I interned for the National Lawyers Guild Bay Area Chapter before moving to New York to work in publishing as an editorial assistant on the sociology and political science lists at Oxford University Press. After deciding I'd had enough of the big city, I moved to New Orleans to take French lessons and embrace the local culture. I then decided I wanted to continue my studies and entered graduate school in 2016.
