She practiced law as an associate at Keker & Van Nest LLP from 2002 to 2005, and then served as a clinical professor of law at the University of California College of the Law, San Francisco (then known as the UC Hastings College of the Law) from 2005 until her appointment to the Alameda County bench in December 2018.
