Senior Law Clerk
Growing up, I spent nearly every weekday afternoon at my grandparents’
house, right here in Tarzana. On the weekends, my grandparents would routinely
wake up at 4 in the morning to accompany my parents, sister, and me to
soccer tournaments all over the state of California. My Oma and Opa (Dutch
for grandma and grandpa) have truly been a second set of parents for me
throughout my life, and I am forever grateful to have grown up just minutes
away from them and to have them so closely integrated in my life.
When I was a junior in high school, Opa underwent surgery for a minor hernia
repair. After surgery, he became septic and was in the ICU for nearly
a week. Ever since his mental acuity has been dramatically diminished
and he has since been diagnosed with advanced dementia. The pain of seeing
my active and engaged Opa become detached and unable to recognize us has
While staying very close to my family, I graduated from the University
of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and
a minor in Gender and Health. I will be a 3rd-year law student at UCLA
this fall, where I serve as the Senior Managing Editor of UCLA’s
Law Review and as a Managing Editor of the Women’s Law Journal.
I am proud to be a Law Clerk at Goldfarb & Luu. Here, everyone is treated
like family. I am routinely inspired by the levels of care and compassion
I see directed towards our clients, as it reminds me of the support my
family has felt during Opa’s declining health.
In my spare time, I enjoy making pasta from scratch, scuba diving, hiking
with Jasper, my golden retriever, and drinking wine with family and friends.
