Immigration has greatly impacted me personally.
My father immigrated from Trinidad, and my husband immigrated from Bolivia. Witnessing their legal immigration processes has given me a personal and empathetic approach when helping others navigate the complexities of the immigration system. I spent my collegiate career learning about the history of immigration, and the policies that continue to affect the U.S. This allowed me to blend my passion for immigration with a better understanding and knowledge of the legal system. Every day I learn something new about people, immigration, and this country’s relationship with this hot-button topic, and I enjoy putting my knowledge, experience, and passion to work for our clients.
