Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I taught and was an assistant principal in the NYC Public Schools as a Peace Corps Fellow at Columbia University's Teacher's College. I left teaching to attend Harvard Law School. I briefly returned to Nepal to work with Bhutanese refugees in Jhapa. After law school I clerked in LA, then worked at a youth center in NYC, The Door, providing general legal services to young people. I then completed two years as the Gibbons Fellow in Public Interest Law in NJ before moving into law teaching at NYU's Lawyering Program. I am now an Associate Professor of Law at UNLV's Boyd School of Law where I direct an Immigration Clinic that provides free legal services to the immigrant community. I am married and have a two-year-old daughter.
