I love being a business immigration paralegal. I find the process and the relationship that develops over the years from working with people on their initial visa petition and their extension very rewarding.
I knew very early on that I wanted a career with an international focus. One of my favorite books as a kid was an atlas my dad gave me. I would look at it for hours, and I’m a geography nerd because of that.
I was raised in a Jewish household. My great-grandfather on my mother’s side immigrated to the U.S. from Poland in the early 1930s. My grandfather and the rest of his family joined my great-grandfather in the U.S. before World War II. Some of my grandfather’s extended family didn’t make it out of Poland. My family history prompted me to have a wide worldview.
Before attending North Carolina State University, I spent a gap year living in Israel. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I explored the country, did some volunteer-work, took some college classes, brushed up on my Hebrew, learned a bit of Arabic, traveled to Egypt, and became a great judge of good hummus.
I love being a business immigration paralegal. I find the process and the relationship that develops over the years from working with people on their initial visa petition and their extension very rewarding. I’ll be working remotely from Raleigh, N.C., where I was born and raised. Even though I’m on the other side of the country, I feel a very deep sense of camaraderie with clients and the other members of the Alcorn Immigration Law team.
When I’m not working, I can often be found playing soccer in a recreational co-ed league or playing Texas Hold’em in a poker league. I’m passionate about watching sports. My first love was gymnastics, but an injury ended my gymnastics career. I also enjoy learning languages in my spare time. Right now, I’m studying Spanish and Arabic and improving my Hebrew.
