Get To Know Me
My mom surprised me with a trip to New York City for spring break during
my last year of law school. I had never been and I had fun cramming everything
I wanted to see in three days, including Vincent Van Gogh’s “The
Starry Night” and two Broadway musicals.

Q & A
What was it about the legal field that drew your interest?
I grew up believing that everything and everyone should be treated equally
and I fought against injustice I perceived in my day to day life accordingly.
The legal field seemed like the best way to continue this practice and
to help my fellow man. I’ve never regretted my decision to enter
the legal field.
What wisdom could you offer aspiring attorneys?
The only way to know whether you like something is to try it. Expose yourself
to all different types of law and workplaces during law school so you
can figure out what you truly want to do with your J.D.
Who is or was the most influential person in your life?
My parents. I am a very independent person, but I almost always get their
opinion or advice on difficult decisions. They’ve always encouraged
me to do anything I set my mind to and as a result, I have been able to
set lofty goals and achieve them time and again.
What is your proudest achievement?
Passing the California Bar exam on the first try is the first thing that
comes to mind, but graduating law school cim laude and getting the top
grade in my Legal Research and Writing class are close seconds.
What’s it like working at Geraci?
It is a wonderful place to work because everyone treats each other like
family. They made me feel welcome and part of the team from the very first
day. They truly are the model "unfirm" law firm. I'm very
lucky to work in such a great environment with such wonderful attorneys
