Hellen Keller stated, “Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge – broad, deep knowledge – is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low.” As a Catholic leader and firm believer in this truth, I commit to creating opportunities for others to gain knowledge so that they are empowered in their lives.
I commit to serving on the TLI West Board for 2020-2021 to help further TLI’s mission of developing Catholic professionals who will advance the mission of the Church and serve the common good in secular society. As an attorney, I will continue to write for legal journals, such as the California Trusts & Estates Quarterly that published my article on the estate planning needs of Latino immigrants. I will also continue to volunteer my time to providing presentations to the public about the importance of financial literacy and planning for the future.
