I have a bachelor's degree in Philosophy, graduating with honors and emphasis in Ethics. I received my Doctorate of Jurisprudence from Chapman University School of Law and have been working in immigration law for more than eight years. I am a member of the Junior League of Boise, and volunteer for Catholic Charities and Women and Children's Alliance.
I feel honored that so many people have trusted me with their immigration matters. My passion is empowering those individuals who are maneuvering through this complex and often confusing U.S. immigration system. In a very real sense, lives are at stake. Families are at risk. I want to make the process as easy as I can for all of those attempting to obtain immigration benefits. Let me take some of the stress and confusion out of the process. Reach out to me.
