I was born in Southern California but moved to Arkansas as a youth. I was the first in my family to attend college and graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2002 with a Bachelors in Sociology and Psychology. After college, I spent seven years as a parole/probation agent. Through this experience, I saw the need for quality legal representation for immigrants. In 2013, I moved to Idaho with her husband and five children. After this move, I enrolled at Concordia University School of Law, graduating with a Juris Doctor in 2018. While in law school, I knew she wanted to be an immigration attorney and focused on immigration law, participating in the immigration clinic and Project LAURA (a nonprofit established to help unaccompanied youth in immigration proceedings). After graduation, I created a nonprofit immigration legal services program in Caldwell named Familias Unidas. After four years with this program, I decided it was time to start my own firm. I am a member of the Idaho State Bar and the American Immigration Lawyer Association. I am also Vice-Chair of the MOSAICS Public School Board of Directors. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and five children, reading, and knitting.
