She worked as a Federal Prosecutor for the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions, before moving to California with her husband (a Bay Area native), and is currently a Deputy District Attorney in San Mateo County, where she lives with her husband and son. While working in Australia, Evelyn was a Justice Advocate with International Justice Mission and became interested in the ways different countries address human trafficking through their laws and law enforcement.
