I have always been interested in languages, different cultures, and communication among people. Consequently, I have become fluent in English, Spanish, Italian, and German. I first became an ESL teacher, upon graduation from college I continued my studies with a Master’s in English Literature and a Law degree.
I studied and worked in South America and Europe before transferring to the United States. As soon as I got my Employment Authorization Document, I started working as a Lecturer at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, devising and teaching courses in Legal Spanish and English for Legal Studies.
After 4 years as a lecturer, I decided to go back to my passion for the law -even if it meant attending law school all over again- and attended Wayne State University Law School in Detroit, Michigan. As a law student, I interned at the Archdiocese of Detroit Legal Immigration Services, was an associate editor for the Michigan International Lawyer, and became qualified as Civil Mediator under MCR 2.411.
I have devoted my legal career to Immigration law, doing my best to contribute to the Melting Pot.
For 2016-2017, I was nominated Vice-Chair of the ABA Section of International Law Immigration & Naturalization Committee.
