Welcome to my De Anza faculty website. I am adjunct faculty in De Anza's business department, and I love it! I am very excited about teaching because this is something I've always dreamed of doing. I am particularly excited to be teaching at De Anza College because I believe it represents excellence in community college education and because of the diverse needs and backgrounds of its students.
I have been teaching at De Anza for four years. The classes I teach include Business 18 (Intro to Business Law), Business 10 (Intro to Business) and Business 65 (Leadership).
I have been an attorney in California for over 25 years. I have a private practice in San Jose that currently focuses on family law mediation; however, I also have a background in litigation. Prior to becoming a lawyer, I was a corporate banking officer and financial analyst for a large interstate bank.
I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance from California State University Chico with distinction.
I received a Juris Doctor degree from Santa Clara University School of Law, summa cum laude.
I have a wide range of personal interests including interior design, travel, photography, textile art, and doing hands on humanitarian aide work.
