She recently spoke on the Washington Council of Lawyers — Representation of Children and Families Panel at the Summer Pro Bono & Public Interest Forum about how to fit pro bono work into one’s practice. She also serves on the Emerging Leaders Committee of Tzedek DC, an independent public interest center at the University of the District of Columbia David A.

Tzedek DC’s mission is to safeguard the legal rights of low-income DC residents facing often unjust, life-altering debt collection lawsuits, and other consumer protection crises.
