Mom, ethics lawyer & community advocate
I am a devoted partner to Eric and mom of three wonderful children: Adrián (8 years old), Mateo (6 years old), and Javier (3 years old). Adrian, Mateo, and Javi attend a local public charter school.
I am an ethics lawyer for the federal government and assist in the enforcement of complaints related to workplace misconduct. Previously, I worked as a litigation associate at Clifford Chance US LLP, often on pro bono matters, including asylum cases before DC-area courts and special education cases involving DC schools. I also taught a human rights clinic at American University Washington College of Law and served as a law clerk at the DC Court of Appeals.
Currently, I serve as the Secretary of the Manor Park Citizens Association and as a Board Member of the Kennedy Street Development Corporation. I am on the Board of the Student Education and Leadership Fund, which provides college scholarships to DC-area students dedicated to using their college education to give back to their local communities. To build my knowledge of community safety issues, I completed the Metropolitan Police Department's six-week Community Engagement Academy and Councilmember Brandon Todd's Block Captain Training. As an active member of DC for Democracy (our family recently won their "Outstanding Family" award for our organizing, advocacy, and community service), I regularly testify and advocate before the DC Council on issues such as establishing a maternal mortality review committee, paid family and medical leave, early childhood education, and healthy schools.
I love spending time in Rock Creek Park, talking politics with Eric, eating burgers at Simple Bar & Grill or tacos at Taqueria Distrito Federal, and playing at the Takoma pool and library with my kids.
