She transferred to UMass Lowell where she obtained a Bachelors Degree in Political Science in 2000 while working full time. In 1999, she began working for then Congressman Martin Meehan as an intern and three months later she was hired as an employee. She left Congressman Meehan’s office in the fall of 2002 to begin law school at the Massachusetts School of Law in Andover, at which time she opened her own business as an immigration consultant.
