She maintained an active pro bono practice as well, including advocating for prisoners’ rights in a series of class action lawsuits against local counties for the poor conditions of their jails.

In 2021, she took a role in-house at Zoom Video Communications as Litigation Counsel where she manages various lawsuits and commercial disputes involving Zoom and advises the business on risk mitigation strategies related to regulatory issues, privacy, competition and antitrust, and employment.
