Meet Andrea Brinkley, a paralegal who joined Alcorn Immigration Law’s business immigration group shortly before we began sheltering in place.
“I love being a business immigration paralegal,” she says. “I find the process and the relationships that develop over the years from working with people on their initial visa petition and their extension very rewarding.”
Andrea is working remotely from Raleigh, N.C., where she was born and raised. “Even though I’m on the other side of the country,” she says, “I feel a very deep sense of camaraderie with clients and the other members of the Alcorn Immigration Law team.”
Previously, Andrea worked as a paralegal at a labor and employment immigration law firm.
More About Andrea
From a very early age, Andrea knew she wanted a career with an international focus. “One of my favorite books as a kid was an atlas my Dad gave to me. I would look at it for hours,” she says. “I’m a geography nerd because of that.”
Andrea was raised in a Jewish household. “My great-grandfather on my mom’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,” she says. “My family history prompted me to have a wide worldview.”
Before attending North Carolina State University, Andrea spent a gap year living in Israel.
She considers living abroad to be “one of the best experiences I’ve ever had.” She explored Israel, did some volunteer work, took some college classes, brushed up on her Hebrew, began learning Arabic, visited Egypt, and became a hummus connoisseur.
