    I work with CSD because I am able to have a direct, positive impact on our future by creating more opportunities, resources, and accessibility for the Deaf community.

    I am primarily responsible for researching legal issues and policy, drafting and analysis of contracts, and supporting CSD’s business units. I recently served three years on the State Bar of Texas Disability Issues Committee, where I focused on promoting the Communication Access Fund, which reimburses Texas attorneys for the cost of auxiliary aids and services (such as interpreters or CART) when meeting with clients who are deaf, deaf-blind, or hard of hearing. I hold a bachelor’s degree with high honors from the University of Texas at Austin and a juris doctorate from the University of Houston Law Center.
