As a legislative intern under the Capitol office of Assembly Member Miguel Santiago, I performed a variety of tasks for the office and Assembly Member Santiago. A highlight of my experiences was briefing the Assembly Member on a variety of bills. One bill I spent a considerable amount of time on was AB2242. This bill was led by the Assembly Member and it focused on mental health care for underserved communities. I led meetings with lobbyists on this bill as well as conducted research and vetted letters.
