California Western School of Law
I represent a portfolio of multinational corporate clients in the management of employment based immigration matters. In this role, I partner with clients to establish and oversee comprehensive nonimmigrant and immigrant visa programs. These programs allow my clients to retain highly specialized workers and experts in a variety of fields. I also counsel clients on issues such as I-9 compliance, new immigration procedures and trends, and the immigration impact of complex mergers and acquisitions. I have spoken on advanced immigration issues for ILW.COM, the San Diego County Bar Association, and firm-wide professional practice meetings.
Prior to joining Fragomen, I represented individuals in a variety of immigration matters including cancellation of removal, asylum, family based petitions and appeals to the Board of Immigration Appeals and the Ninth Circuit. I also interned for the in-house counsel of a Fortune 500 company. This experience has provided me with a unique understanding of my corporate clients’ goals and allows me to develop comprehensive immigration solutions to help meet these goals. I am the recipient of the Wiley W. Manuel Award for Pro Bono Legal Services, Casa Cornelia Law Center's Special Recognition Award, and California Western School of Law Dean's Scholarship.
I am currently a member of the San Diego County Bar Foundation Board of Directors, the Lawyers Club, the San Diego Human Resources Forum, CONNECT San Diego and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. I remain committed to representing indigent clients through my pro bono work at Casa Cornelia Law Center. As a volunteer attorney, I participate in Casa Cornelia's legal screening clinics and assist the law center with the screening of victims of crimes, victims of domestic violence, and unaccompanied minor children to determine whether they may qualify for immigration relief.
As the daughter of an immigrant, the practice of immigration law is especially meaningful to me. I love that my work allows me to help people come to the U.S. to pursue their dreams. I am passionate about traveling and exploring new cultures. During my personal time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and newborn daughter, practicing yoga, and spending time near the ocean.
