Throughout my studies, as well as my career, I have pursued opportunities that put me in a position to help others. It’s something I value on a personal level and have always wanted to develop in my career. My passion for employment law stems from a situation I saw my mother go through with her former employer. I saw firsthand how much it affected her in every aspect of her life. I understood the need and the importance of having someone trustworthy championing for her rights as an employee, and it is the type of attorney that I have always strived to be. Someone who will not waver on their commitment to their client and will always go above and beyond to make sure their rights are protected.

I was born in St. Petersburg, FL and raised in Puerto Rico. My unique upbringing and navigating through both the Hispanic and American cultures has played an important role in my becoming an attorney. After graduating magna cum laude with a BA in Psychology at Florida International University, in Miami, I returned to Puerto Rico and finished my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology.

After graduating, I realized that there were more ways I could help people and one was becoming an attorney. I then graduated magna cum laude with a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Puerto Rico. After law school I passed both the Puerto Rico and Florida bar examinations and began my path as an attorney. My primary goal in life has always been to make a difference in the world. If my career has taught me anything, it’s that the best way to accomplish that is to do my best to help one person at a time.
