During her legal studies, she completed extensive research on state and federal bad faith insurance topics, including bad faith insurance claims, unfair settlement of claims, and misrepresentations made by insurance companies. In the four years preceding her move to Houston, Texas, she worked in the field of Immigration Law and Personal Injury Law. Her Immigration experience included handling Family-Based and Employment-Based Immigration cases including TN Visas, H-1B Visas, F-1 Student Visas, Fiance Visas, Permanent Resident and Green Card applications, and Naturalization applications.
