About me

I grew up in the Denver, Colorado area and attended college at the University of Colorado in Boulder.  During my undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado, I studied Spanish abroad in Alicante, Spain.  After graduating with a degree in political science, I moved to Lima, Peru to continue studying Spanish at the Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano.  Prior to law school, I worked as a community organizer in Denver and in Ft. Collins, Colorado.  During law school studies at the University of Colorado, I interned with the Immigrant Legal Center of Boulder County, a non-profit organization specializing in providing immigration law services to the immigrant community.  I also interned at the Rocky Mountain Immigrant Advocacy Center ("RMIAN") in Denver, Colorado, an organization focused on provided legal services to detained non-citizens.  Also during law school, I clerked for the Joseph Law Firm, P.C.  Following graduation from law school, I joined the Joseph Law Firm as an associate attorney.
