I have a J1 visa and my wife has a TN1 visa. She wishes to teach fitness part time, can she get a J2 and still keep her TN1?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Plainsboro, NJ

My wife is trying to figure out if she can get a job teaching fitness classes. We have been told that the TN1 visa is only good for the specific sponsor company. I am in the US with a J1 as a research scholar and she is working for a consulting company on a TN1. We are both Canadian Citizens
