Before law school, Mary worked for four years as an Immigration Paralegal, first with the Immigrant Worker Project in Canton, Ohio, and later at The Legal Aid Society in New York City, as a Department of Justice Partially Accredited Representative. Her work as a Paralegal provided her the privilege and responsibility of being entrusted with her clients’ stories of abuse, violence, and daily trials. Mary’s experience as a paralegal motivated her to attend law school to better represent her clients and their communities. At Northeastern University School of Law, she interned with the Mekong Migration Network, Northwest Workers’ Justice Project, Legal Centre Lesbos, the Department of Justice Executive Office for Immigration Review, and Prisoners’ Legal Services of New York. Mary is placed at Prisoners’ Legal Services of New York where she represents indigent detained New York State prisoners, located in upstate New York correctional facilities, and facing removal.
