Helen joined the ILRC in August of 2016 and is responsible for overseeing seminars, webinars and other trainings that we make available to the public.
Prior to coming to San Francisco, she served as the Operations Manager at San Diego LGBT Pride, where she handled everything from accounting to IT. In addition to helping to organize one of the largest civic events in Southern California, she was a fierce advocate for the LGBTQ community. After moving to the Bay Area and going into hibernation while doing a brief stint as an event planner in corporate finance, she found her way back to social justice work and joined the ILRC. Helen holds a dual-degree in Ethnic Studies and History from UC San Diego. In her free time, she can be found gardening, stargazing, or volunteering as a Sexual Assault Crisis Counselor. She is conversant in Cantonese.
