Jeanette was drawn to workplace investigations because the practice allows her to view cases through a neutral lens.
Prior to joining OIG, Jeanette worked at UC Davis’ Employee and Labor Relations Department. In this role, she worked with the university and the unions to ensure compliance with union contracts and university policies.
While she was in law school, Jeanette worked as a student counselor in the Worker’s Rights Clinic, where she assisted English- and Spanish-speaking workers with employment matters. She also worked a law clerk with the California Department of Civil Rights. Here, she interviewed witnesses for housing and workplace discrimination cases.
In her free time, Jeanette enjoys traveling, baking, group fitness, and watching cult documentaries.
