I graduated from Santa Clara University with a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology. After graduating, I continued my practical training at Children's Health Awareness Council (CHAC) in Mountain View, where I worked with adults, children, and families. My training there included working as a school-based therapist in four elementary and high schools. After finishing my training, I worked as a school therapist at Walter Hays Elementary School in Palo Alto through the agency CASSY (Counseling and Support Services for Youth). In addition to my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, I have a law degree from Duke University and a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania. I live in Mountain View with my husband and my two teenage children.
