Connection to Immigration

I remember my first year of law school we had an immigration attorney visit our class to talk about her career. She was raising children and managed to build a career as well. She had a lasting impact on me and I still speak to her from time to time! I realized then, practicing immigration would allow me to have a powerful positive impact on people’s lives while also raising a family.

What is a fun fact about you?

As I kid, I was obsessed with all things aviation related. I went to space camp, and I had my pilot’s license by age 13!
