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 for our start-up.
I left Byliner in 2014 for a position at The Boston Consulting Group, where I plan to keep developing my operational skills on a larger scale. At BCG, I support 7 busy consultants who work across the globe with a variety of Fortune 500 clients, and I’m very excited to keep expanding my experience as I tackle new projects on their behalf.
And of course, outside regular office hours, I continue to work as a freelance writer, contributing to several online publications/ blogs. 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 audiobook version of both titles were released by Audible in July 2015.
