I am a public interest attorney, practicing at Greater Bakersfield Legal Assistance for the past 23 years, with 8 years before that at Legal Aid in San Diego. I am passionate about children and try to do what I can do to improve their lives. I have had the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors of the KCBA for a few years, and am willing to continue if you’ll have me. I try to bring the perspective of pro per and low-income litigants to the table. I loved being the KCBA representative in the formation of the STAR (mental health) court here in Kern County.
