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’ve continued to develop my operational skills on a larger scale. At BCG, I support the West Coast System Lead and Chief Client Officer for one of our largest global energy clients & a Principal specializing in Consumer Ops. Both work across the globe with a variety of Fortune 500 clients, and I’m very excited to keep enhancing my experience as I tackle new projects on their behalf.
And of course, outside regular office hours, I continue to write, 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 audiobook version of both titles were released by Audible in July 2015.
