I received my J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center and my B.A. from Cornell University. In college, I majored in Russian and French, and before law school, I spent two years teaching English as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Ukraine. In the years since, I have provided ESL tutoring to students with a diversity of backgrounds, ages, and nationalities. During law school, I taught full-length LSAT courses and provided private LSAT tutoring for a test preparation company. Indeed, I have a special place in my heart for the LSAT, and I think it's a test that becomes much more manageable with a lot of practice and a solid understanding of its mechanics. I just moved to the Bay Area from Alaska, where I clerked for a judge in Dillingham, a remote town accessible only by plane. Needless to say, I love the outdoors, and when I'm not working, I like to spend my time hiking, biking, or exploring Oakland with my dog, Cyrus.
