Currently near Chicago, Sara-Ann was born into a family in NYC involved in social justice issues, and she is excited to work with AsylumConnect. She graduated from New York Law School, and has spent her career as an immigration paralegal and attorney. Growing up, she was torn between Constitutional Law and singing international folk and protest songs. She earned a B.A. in music and briefly toured around New England and abroad with a quirky singing group in a whimsically painted bus, but soon gravitated to immigration law to hone her critical and creative thinking skills and advocate for individuals coming to the U.S. She loves that supporting AsylumConnect’s work to advance LGBTQ immigrant rights unites her legal skills and moral convictions. Sara-Ann is also a non-fiction and podcast junkie (especially psychology, social justice, and investigative journalism), and loves the outdoors, cooking garlicky and spicy, and baking chocolatey.
