Moving from Texas to California to go 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 and volunteering for a Surfrider Foundation chapter, Angela transitioned to Surfrider Foundation staff and is now the Legal Director for the Surfrider Foundation. In leading organization's legal strategy, she fights for sustainable solutions to environmental challenges and works to increase Surfrider’s impact for healthy coasts. In her spare moments, Angela spends time with her family at the beach and surfs whenever there is a chance!
