During law school, as part of BLSA, she and other members organized a clothing drive which benefited several non-profit organizations in Sacramento County and brought awareness to the law school’s presence in the community. Since graduating from college, she has worked with several church homeless outreach ministries in Maryland, South Carolina, California, New Jersey, and New York. She currently works with Rescue Rachel, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping homeless youth and deterring human trafficking.
