In addition, I also support our Environmental, Social, and Governance practice, lending my industry knowledge on “green” tax credits and incentives. 

Throughout my career, I have worked with a wide range of clients, from large multinational companies to smaller middle market businesses. Industry agnostic, I’ve assisted clients in almost every industry, from software and technology, manufacturing, cosmetics, food and beverage, to agriculture, life sciences, and cannabis. 

As a licensed California attorney with experience in private practice and a big four firm, I bring my experience, passion, and analytical skills to solve your complex business issues and maximize your tax savings. 

As a board of directors’ member of the MGO Cares and Committee Advisor to MGO’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiative, I am passionate about improving our capability to serve you and our communities by helping to bridge the gap internally and externally to support a diverse and inclusive culture.
