Moving from Texas to California to law school at UC Berkeley, Angela quickly learned to love the wonder of surfing and snowboarding that California has to offer. Luckily for Surfrider, she decided to stay and take the California bar exam. After a couple of years honing legal skills at a large law firm, Angela transitioned to become one of the Surfrider Foundation staff. As the Legal Director for the Surfrider Foundation and leading its legal strategy, she fights for sustainable solutions to environmental challenges and works to increase Surfrider’s impact for healthy coasts. In her sparetime, Angela chases her two little girls, Vianna and Lorelai, and when she gets a chance, surfs with her husband, Derek.
