My FTC moment is when I first came to work at the Western Region-San Francisco as a law student in 2006. As I expected, I instantly fell in love with the work. What I didn’t expect was how impressed I would be by the people I met. They were dedicated, experienced public servants who were generous with their guidance and mentorship, as well as their friendship. When I was given the opportunity to join the office after law school, I didn’t think twice. Now, years later, I still value our work in protecting consumers, and I consider my Western Region friends to be family.
