Ana grew up in Honduras. When she was nine years old, her mother came to the United States, and Ana remained in Honduras with family, where she attended Catholic school and learned impeccable English. In 2012, Ana joined her mother in the United States and has lived with her mother and stepfather in New Jersey since that time.
Since she is fluent in English, she easily completed high school in New Jersey, and ultimately received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Ramapo College. Before working with Andres Mejer Law, she gained valuable experience at another law firm, where she began honing her paralegal skills. Ana brings not only paralegal experience, but an enthusiastic and upbeat attitude to the office.
Ana assists with the firm’s traffic and U-Visa immigration matters, calling municipal courts and clients daily and organizing the firm’s calendar. At times, you may also see her in the front office assisting clients.
When she’s not in the office (yes, we let her go home sometimes), she indulges her passion for baking. Watching soccer and tennis on television are other activities she enjoys to relax. She told us that she doesn’t play either sport, but she has been known to shake off some energy at Zumba classes.
Ana enjoys learning the legal and business processes which are the backbone of the firm. One day, she hopes to use her business skills to open a bakery of her own. We certainly hope that she is successful at that venture, but in the meantime, we encourage her to practice her baking skills and share her sweet treats with the office.
