During World War II, the U.S. government detained my U.S. citizen grandparents because of their Japanese ancestry. Learning about this history and serving as my grandfather's caretaker inspired me to be a social justice advocate.
I clerked for Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, LLP and the Honorable Kristen L. Mix of the U.S. District Court. As an immigration attorney, I received honors from Chambers and Partners, Best Lawyers, and Super Lawyers.
Outside of the courtroom, I completed a silent meditation course and coached a basketball team. I speak at conferences and universities regarding racial equity, ethics, and immigration law. I am a former president of Las Vegas Buddhist Sangha, a current trustee for the Nevada Bar Foundation, and an aspiring favorite parent.
