I began working in the legal field in 2005 as a legal assistant, and eventually obtained my paralegal degree. I have focused primarily in family, juvenile / dependency, guardianship, and immigration. I was fortunate enough to remain with the same two attorneys from 2006 through the beginning of 2019. During some of that time, I also worked as a GAL / CASA from 2007 through 2019. I then began a new chapter working for the Attorney General’s Office (dependency division) in April 2019.
I have a Paralegal ATA, NALS PP-SC, an AA degree, and BS in Law & Justice. In addition, I obtained my LLLT license in 2019. I am also a notary (including remote / electronic and signing agent).
I am a SoCal native, and now a Washington transplant as I have lived the majority of my adult life in Washington. When not working, or continuing my education, I enjoy volunteering in my community, and spending time with family (which includes my husband and daughter), friends, and my hairless cats (Sphynx). Fun facts: I am the only girl of six children, one of which is my twin brother. I am also working on becoming a recognized Italian Citizen. Fingers crossed!
