I became a lawyer because I wanted to help people. I view my foremost role as an attorney to provide my clients with the relevant information they need to make well-informed decisions. Sometimes clients only need information on how to solve an urgent or short-term issue. Other times clients need assistance strategizing on how best to achieve long-term goals. Either way, I want my clients to know that I am available as a knowledgeable resource for any of their immigration or employment needs.

My Approach

Maneuvering through immigration law and its ample changes can be complex and time consuming for Human Resources. It can also be a fundamental aspect of whether a great candidate can accept their offer of employment and begin working in a timely manner. As such, I take a partnership approach with my clients. I coordinate with HR to obtain the necessary information about the position and the candidate. Then I help educate HR about the process, timeline, and any further obligations. Next, I work directly with the foreign national to gather their personal and status information, answer their questions and work swiftly to file their case and receive a positive outcome. With each matter, my primary goal is to eliminate the burden of the application process for both HR and the prospective employee. I also strive to have the utmost transparency with my clients, ensure they are informed each step of the way and receive a favorable result.

More About Me

Prior to joining BrownWinick, I worked for several years at a boutique immigration law firm. This opportunity provided me an immersive experience into the immigration realm where I learned the intricacies of the immigration system and developed key knowledge and strategy in numerous immigrant and nonimmigrant processes.

I am originally from Lincoln, Nebraska (and a diehard Husker fan, despite living in the heart of Iowa). I attended Drake University Law School and graduated with honors in December 2016. While at Drake, I earned an International and Comparative Human Rights Law Certificate and was a member of the Drake Journal of Agricultural Law. I received my undergraduate degree at Doane University (then Doane College) in Crete, Nebraska, where I graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and Spanish. While at Doane, I was active in numerous organizations and played on the Women’s soccer team.
