I was born in Venezuela, but I moved to Georgia with my family at age 10. I attended Georgia StateUniversity where I graduated with a Bachelor in Business Administration in 2009. After college, I worked as a congressional aide for U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson in Washington D.C. In 2011, I came back to Georgia for law school; and in 2014, I obtained my Juris Doctorate from Georgia State University College of Law. While in law school, I clerked for the Honorable Alford J. Dempsey, Fulton County Superior Court. In addition, I worked in the in-house litigation counsel office of a Fortune 500 insurance company. After law school, I opened up a general law practice in Roswell, GA focused on helping the Hispanic community.
