She graduated from the University of Houston Law Center where she was an active member of the mock trial team, winning awards for her advocacy at local and national competitions. While in law school, AJ defended many students in their Honor Board proceedings. After law school, AJ clerked for The Honorable Juan F. Alanis in McAllen, Texas. Before beginning her legal career, AJ worked in fundraising for several esteemed arts organizations, including NPR and the Smithsonian. She will always have a love for the arts.
