Having completed all of the National Committee on Accreditation (“NCA”) requirements of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada to be admitted to the Law Society of British Columbia, I am very excited to be articling at McMillan. I completed law school in Peru and was admitted to the Lima Bar in 2007. Before moving to Canada, I worked with a law firm in Lima assisting and advising individuals and companies with real estate, notary, corporate, and civil law matters. Over the past two years, I attended the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia and completed NCA required coursework through the graduate-level program for foreign lawyers. I also hold an Immigration Law Diploma from Ashton College and became a Registered Canadian Immigration Consultant in 2012. I have experience assisting and representing corporate clients and individuals on a wide variety of immigration matters.

Prior to joining McMillan, I worked with a Vancouver immigration law firm as an immigration consultant, as well as with a major Vancouver law firm as a paralegal in the immigration and real estate department, and with a New Westminster law firm as a real estate/corporate paralegal. In 2016, I joined McMillan’s Real Estate Group as a senior paralegal, assisting the firm’s clients with commercial real estate transactions involving the acquisition, development, financing, subdivision and sale of commercial and residential properties.

Outside of work, I enjoy watching movies, travelling and spending time with my family and friends.
