What do you like most about working at SpeakEasy?
I like working with a group of individuals who are passionate about what they do, and I enjoy helping down ballot candidates make a difference in their communities.
Where are you based and what’s your favorite thing to do in your city?
I am based in my hometown of Oakland, California and my favorite thing to do in my city is eating at all my favorite taco trucks (I have multiple favorites and they’re all special in their own way), going for walks in the Oakland Hills or around Lake Merritt, and going to my local farmers market!
When you’re not working, how do you like spending your free time?
When I am not working, I am cooking (it’s very therapeutic for me and I love learning new recipes) or I am spending time in my backyard with my family, probably sipping on a glass of wine!
If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
Michelle Obama, she’s a queen and would probably give me some really good advice!
Describe SpeakEasy in 3 words.

Where is the best place you’ve traveled to and why?
Barcelona!!! I love the architecture, the people, the food, the beach, the city, the weather, I can go on and on…
What’s been your favorite project to work on at SpeakEasy?
There’s many, but I’ve really enjoyed working on a project that is dedicated to promoting and expanding access to voting!
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I’ve traveled to more places abroad than I have US states! I definitely plan on exploring the US some more.
In a post-COVID world, where are you excited to travel first?
Mexico! It has everything I love – delicious food, beautiful beaches, and lots of sunshine!
