Unique experiences make me uniquely valuable.
Becoming a paralegal was not a decision I reached lightly. I struggled for years after getting my Bachelor’s before I decided to go back to school and start a career in the legal field. The work I have done, both during college and after, has given me a unique perspective on helping people and communicating effectively.
Bachelor of Arts – English
I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2012 with a degree in English. I excelled in analyzing literary texts and writing research papers. I also made the Dean’s list the last four semesters I was a full-time student.
I’m currently attending Tacoma Community College’s Paralegal Pro-Certificate program. TCC’s paralegal program is one of the only paralegal programs in the area that is approved by the ABA.
Second Grade Teacher

Due to complications with school schedules and issues with remote learning, I decided to homeschool my son for the 2020-2021 school year. As a teacher, I am responsible for:
- conveying new and abstract concepts in a relatable way.
- lesson planning, grading, and organizing learning material.
- maintaining student records in accordance with state requirements.

I worked part-time for Smart-Web-Concepts as a copywriter. I was responsible for:
- Write content for email marketing campaigns, promotions, newsletters, and social media.
- Vary language and tone based on product and medium.
- Organize and schedule social media posts and marketing campaigns in accordance with client’s wishes.
January 2014 – February 2016
I worked for a boutique coastal furniture store as their online content manager. My responsibilities included:

Food Service Worker
I worked various jobs in the food service industry, ranging from pizza delivery driver to waitress. I was promoted to shift manager at two of my employers, and I learned a lot about customer service and communication. Some of my key responsibilities were:
- working efficiently to provide customers a stellar experience.
- communicating clearly and effectively about products, pricing, customer service issues, and employee concerns.
- scheduling staff and ordering supplies.
