Bailee Rad (’04, gender, ethnic and multicultural studies): As a former top-ranked tennis player as a teenager, Bailee Rad spent the early part of her career in a different type of court – as a high-level workers’ compensation lawyer. She spent years fighting cases in court before realizing that she could make a bigger impact outside of the judicial system. She owns and operates Lavanderia Clasica, a 4,000-square-foot laundromat in Van Nuys that doubles as a community room that provides free educational and CPR classes, seminars, college application and resume-writing help, and other community programs.
