The Writer

My zone of genius is planning, conducting, and coordinating client contracts to support our accounting manager, project managers, and technical staff. I first became interested in legislative analysis when I worked for the City of San Francisco as a Survey Associate with a focus on condominium conversions and local land use laws. As an avid reader and writer, I’ve always had a fervent love of language: analyzing and crafting text comes naturally to me.

Embracing Challenge

Nothing motivates me like a good challenge as the means to refine and better myself. I believe that even when things don’t go my way and circumstances become difficult, there is always a solution and I will learn through the experience. That’s why I love coming to work every day: our team values good work, great people, and being as helpful as possible to those around us. Before Salter, I taught elementary school and spent a year working as an educator in Spain. My hobbies are anything related to crafts, especially refurbishing furniture and creating stationary. Outdoor time is essential: my favorite Sundays are the ones that start with making a quick sandwich, packing water, and heading out for a hike or bike ride with family and friends.
