Burnham-Moores Center Welcomes New Instructor
Tehrani received her bachelor's degree in economics from the University of California, Berkeley and her J.D. and Master of Real Estate Development in a dual degree program from the University of Southern California. During graduate school, Tehrani contributed to the "California Condominium and Planned Development Practice" book published by the Continuing Education of the Bar and worked at the USC Law School Domestic Violence Clinic and the Santa Monica City Attorney's office. Tehrani was also an advocate for victims of child abuse at the Children's Law Center in Monterey Park, CA, where she took a special interest in motivating young people to make education a priority. Upon completion of graduate school in August 2004, Tehrani clerked at the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office. Tehrani says these combined experiences uncovered her passion for teaching.
Her exposure to her family's work in real estate influenced her decision to pursue real estate as a specialty, which she did for two years in Los Angeles as a transactional real estate attorney. The daughter of a real estate developer and computer engineer/real estate broker, Tehrani was exposed to the industry at an early age. She often accompanied her father to his development sites as a child, and later helped her mother evaluate properties and redraft documents. It wasn't until law school, however, that she realized she had a knack for the subject. "When I was in law school, I discovered my passion for real estate," she says. "I took a real estate transactions course, and I saw that I had the aptitude as well as the interest in it."
Tehrani says she is excited to join USD's "growing and popular real estate program" and combine her two areas of interest, teaching and real estate. As a new San Diego resident, Tehrani says she is also looking forward to enjoying "a San Diego lifestyle and the best weather in the world."
