Huacong (Hua) is an intellectual property attorney at Booth Udall Fuller, PLC. She mainly works on protection of biotechnology inventions and prosecution of trademarks. Her career path started with a series of discussion on market monopolies and their impact on economic development in her high school AP Economics class (where she was lucky enough to participate in ACEE’s stock market competition and economics challenge). The career path continued with college courses in economics and degrees in life sciences. Although it was disappointing that Hua could not pursue a degree in economics, she happily uses the analytical skills she learned in various economics classes to manage her practice of law, advise her clients, and reason through current events. She firms believes in ACEE’s goals and hopes that all Arizona students can gain the analytical skills she gained from economics classes so that they can make the best decisions about their future.
Hua received a B.A. in Biological Sciences from Wellesley College and a M.S. in Physiological Sciences from the University of Arizona. She earned her law degree and certificate in Intellectual Property from Arizona State University.
