I graduated in 2007 from Lewis and Clark College in Portland with a BA in Economics. While working on my degree, I spent a semester in Buenos Aires, Argentina, taking classes on Latin American history and economics, as well as Spanish language courses. More recently, I spent several years in Spain. I greatly enjoyed getting to know the people and culture, and being immersed in Spanish for a long period of time.

As a legal assistant at Global Law Advocates, I focus on immigration court cases, unlawful presence waivers and naturalization, as well as investigations of eligibility for immigration benefits. I enjoy working with clients and appreciate their positive attitudes. I feel a great deal of satisfaction when we bring a case to successful completion.
