Her advice and counsel has shaped the market.

Hastings College of the Law in 2015 with a concentration in intellectual property law. She has been named a Northern California Rising Star by her colleagues in the legal profession continuously since 2019 (a distinction granted to less than 2.5% of lawyers).
