Protection, education and access of public outdoor space and my love of horses brought me to Sunset Valley in 2008 where I served as an elected official and volunteer continuously from 2008-2022. During this period, I also acted as Managing Partner for a boutique law firm before forming my own practice in 2010.  My drive for public advocacy and volunteerism continue now with my service to Hill Country Conservancy and other development organizations to contribute to the future of the Austin we will all get to enjoy.


I was born in Kabul, Afghanistan which is a story in itself and raised in Moore, Oklahoma where I acquired my love of horseback riding.  After completing my undergraduate work at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, I worked in International Education for an Austin based study abroad company managing their South America and Mexico offices and acting as the US Admissions Director for Latin American Programs and Chile Site Specialist.  After law school, I clerked for the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals for two years before going into private practice.
