Biography

I joined the law school staff as a Bilingual Program Assistant (Clinical Programs) in 2018. In this role, I translate and interpret on behalf of our office’s Spanish-speaking clients, co-manage our volunteer interpreter program. respond to requests for legal assistance, and help with office administration. I occasionally assist clinic faculty with casework and research. I grew up in Seattle, Washington, and moved to North Carolina for college. I graduated from Duke University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology. My honors thesis, “‘Bad Hombres’ Pay Taxes: How Much Does Unauthorized Immigration Really Cost?” quantified tax contributions made by undocumented immigrants in the United States. I was a 2017-2018 Fulbright English Teaching Assistant in Mexico. In 2020, I received the Hillary Rodham Clinton Award for Peace and Reconciliation.
