I am an attorney fluent in Farsi, with a special interest in Iranian politics, United States foreign policy, and international diplomacy. After completing my Master’s Degree in International Law, with a focus on human rights and development, my career evolved into working for a world-renowned corporate law firm. I was involved in the regulatory review of several high-profile mergers & acquisitions, counseling individual debtor clients and negotiating significant settlements with major financial institutions.
I have since moved on to working as a Senior Acquisitions Consultant at FEMA and a Business Process Management Consultant at USDA. At FEMA, I meet with key stakeholders to gather and capture functional requirements in order to assess existing acquisitions contracts and provide strategic modifications. At USDA, I support the Office of the Chief Information Officer in meeting regulatory and statutory requirements for planning and process governance. These positions have enhanced my superior analytical and problem-solving skills that are synonymous with a legal education.
Still very much interested in human rights issues and international development, my work experience has provided me with a strong understanding of global cultures and an ability to succeed in multicultural work settings. I have an ability to adapt to new environments and rise to the challenges related to working within the ranks of any multinational company, think tank, NGO or legal practice.
