I graduated from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1995. In 1996, I attended the American University where I studied for my masters degree in Economics. In 1997, I was a founding member of the United Hmong Coalition - an ad hoc grass roots organization dedicated to increasing voter participation in the political process. I was appointed the Assistant Director of the Wisconsin Office of the Governor – Milwaukee in February of 2003.  In April of 2003, I was accepted to the University of Michigan Law School. In 2004, I was awarded an Asian Pacific Bar Association scholarship to work on Asian legal issues in Washington D.C. Graduating from law school in 2006, I participated in the successful re-election of Wisconsin Governor Jim Doyle. 

I work in the areas of Business Law, Real Estate Law, Family Law, Contract Law, and Immigration Law. 

I was part of the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s Committee to Improve Interpretation in the State of Wisconsin.  I have interpreted for the 6th Circuit Federal District Court and also Milwaukee County Circuit Court.  My experience includes translation of Ashley Furniture’s employee manual from English into Hmong. 


Law is an invention. Without law, society would not be able to grow and prosper. Law is not static but must bend and change to benefit society.
