During law school, she interned with CARECEN SF, and learned she loved interacting with clients in direct service work. Piper was also a policy intern at National Immigration Law Center, where her work centered around immigration reform and policies that affect detained immigrants. She was the editor of the UC Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal and participated in the Refugee and Human Rights Clinic through the UC Hastings Center for Gender and Refugee Studies.
