I enjoy reading and writing with a good cup of coffee and am excited to go to law school in the future. I love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, rock climbing and running. I plan to pursue a career in environmental law.

DC Semester: Fall 2009
School: UGA School of Public and International Affairs
Type of Internship: Governmental Agency

From the sunny island of Puerto Rico, my family ended up in a tiny town in Georgia.  After high school, I knew I wanted to study international affairs, and I was extremely happy that I was accepted into the University of Georgia in 2006.  During the fall of 2009, I was accepted into WSP, and became the first WSP intern at the Department of Justice. Shortly after graduating, I was hired as a federal contractor for the same office for which I interned.  After moving to DC, I decided that I would like to advance in my legal career, and decided to finish a graduate level paralegal studies certification at The George Washington University.  By then, I worked alongside another WSP alum for an energy utility company that had a remote office in DC for its FERC attorneys and lobbyists.  However, my first office at the DOJ was looking for paralegals, and I was promptly recruited back as a Paralegal Specialist for the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices within the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice.

I spent my last semester at UGA doing the Washington Semester Program, interning on The Hill. The following fall, I started at Duke Law School, where I participated in their version of the program, Duke in DC, interning at the Department of Justice. I’m now a staff attorney for a local government agency in Virginia.
