Where are you originally from?

Born and raised in Chicago, Ill. My parents are from Puerto Rico, but lived most of their lives in Chicago. I moved to Puerto Rico in 2004 and then to Florida in 2006.

Position in LCLAS/Description?

I am a Paralegal to the staff attorneys. I put pride in what I do. I assist in all cases and draft whatever necessary pleadings that may be needed. I care deeply in the work I do as my job is extremely important and sensitive because everything done can affect the clients lives. I am detailed oriented and very picky with my files. I am on top of clients issues and keep them well informed.

Accomplishments:

Obtained my degree in Paralegal Studies in Caguas, Puerto Rico while attending Huertas Junior College, although at that time I had limited proficiency with the Spanish language, I managed to become top 10 of the school’s student honors. I am a Florida Notary since 2008, and will soon become a Certified Interpreter for the State of Florida.
