Meet Your Candidate

I am a longtime worker’s rights advocate. As a Board Certified labor and employment lawyer, I’ve spent my legal career fighting for employees and labor unions.

A Houston native, I was raised in a union family, by a father who was a member of the Communications Workers of America, AFL-CIO, and a mother who was a member of the Houston Federation of Teachers, AFL-CIO.

I graduated with Sociology and Political Science degrees from Texas Tech University before attending graduate school at North Carolina State University with the intention of becoming a sociology professor. While in graduate school, I grew increasingly passionate about workers’ rights but frustrated with the lack of opportunities for creating real change within academic Sociology. With these lessons learned, I obtained my Masters of Sociology degree, hightailed it back to Texas, and attended law school at Texas Tech University School of Law. During law school, I clerked for HFT and Texas Rural Legal Aid, a fantastic non-profit law firm that provides free employment representation to migrant farmworkers.
