I am passionate about policy and making a difference through cross sectoral collaboration and consensus. I current analyze and advise on transportation policy for the CA State Assembly. After Oxy, I did Coro, then worked at the Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs, then got a job as an environmental lobbyist in Sacramento. I then became personal staff for Assemblymember Friedman, then worked at the California Transportation Commission, and now work for the committee on Transportation, where Assemblymember Friedman is the Chair.

Career Advice:
