She was also published in the California Western International Law Journal with an article on the Russian mail-order bride industry and the Violence Against Women Act, an article which won her an award for outstanding writing.

In this regard, she has become one of only a handful of attorneys across the nation with an active practice in the adoption and immigration of foreign-born children.
