Katerina Ricci is a dispute resolution specialist and mediator providing services in small claims, unlawful detainment, and civil harassment cases at Los Angeles Superior Court. Her passion for work at High Conflict Institute grew when she took a class with Professor Bill Eddy at Pepperdine Caruso School of Law during her graduate studies where she received a Master’s in Dispute Resolution (MDR). Before law school she worked in the scientific field after earning a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics from UCLA. Her scientific background and expertise in mediation opened a unique opportunity for bridging the gap between the scientific and legal fields. As an educator, Katerina values her previous work with students with disabilities as that experience allowed her to learn diverse and valuable skills.
