JC graduated from Cornell University with a degree in Policy Analysis and Management. The highlight of her time at the University of San Diego School of Law was working with the Center for Public Interest Law and the Children’s Advocacy Institute. She credits her passion for public service to a Jesuit high school teacher who told her that the duty of privilege is service to others. JC is now a Foreign Service Officer, commonly known as a diplomat, with the Department of State. Currently she is serving as a Consular Officer at the U.S. Consulate General in Shanghai, China, where she uses her Chinese language skills to adjudicate non-immigrant visa applications and provide support services to Americans in China.
