For my most up-to-date professional information, check out my profile on LinkedIn.
I graduated from UCLA in 2009, earning my B.A. in Global Studies with a minor in French in only 3 years. While my college experience was shorter than most, I managed to study abroad in both Paris & Shanghai, as well as complete a 35 page thesis paper under the advisement of a UCLA Law professor. Throughout my time in school, and for approximately 3 years after graduation, I also accrued ~5 years experience working in law firms in different fields, doing everything from paralegal work to running Accounts Payable.
Ultimately, I decided to transition away from a career in law and, in September 2012, I moved to San Francisco to begin working at Byliner, a subscription reading service and e-book publisher. There, I was the Executive Assistant to the CEO, President, Editor-in-Chief, and VP of Operations, as well as served as office manager.
When Byliner sold to Vook in 2014, I left for a position at The Boston Consulting Group, where I’ve continued developing my operational skills on a larger scale. At BCG, I support the West Coast System Lead (think: CEO of the region) & Chief Client Officer for one of our largest global energy clients & a Principal specializing in Consumer Ops. As I’ve mastered my core duties, I’ve also had the opportunity to manage additional projects in social impact, new hire integration, and contribute to several affiliation committees.
And, outside office hours, I dabble as a freelance writer, contributing to several online publications. My work has been published on Thought Catalog, Huffington Post, The Advocate, The Rumpus, Medium, and others. Thought Catalog Books published my first e-book, “I Swear I’ll Be Good At It!” in November 2013, and my second e-book, “You Should Fall For Someone Who Doesn’t Love You” was published in February 2015. The audio book version of both titles were released by Audible in July 2015.
