Fong has served on numerous New Jersey Supreme Court committees, including Women in the Courts, and the Committee on Character.

Fong earned her law degree from Rutgers School of Law – Newark, and her B.A. in Political Science from Douglass College at Rutgers University. She is admitted to the bar in New Jersey, New York and in the U.S. District Courts for the District of New Jersey and the Southern District of New York.
