As a bilingual daughter of immigrants and a lawyer for more than 22 years, I have championed the rights of everyday people in all my professional and volunteer work, including: as a Justice Deputy for a Los Angeles County Supervisor, an attorney in workplace fairness matters and in my work on the Board of Directors of a San Gabriel nonprofit serving my community. 



I am deeply rooted in San Gabriel and invested in its future. I own my business and home in this great city and I am raising my family here. My daily connection with residents from all over San Gabriel will allow me to bring people together to improve your experience with government.
