Bridging the gap between
"My experiences as a Latina and native Spanish speaker, who came to the U.S. at 17 on a merit scholarship, shaped the lawyer I became. I have spent my entire professional career challenging stereotypes, breaking down barriers, educating people, and now mentoring the younger generation. I speak on diversity and inclusion often, in particular to law students. I have two imperatives with #CafeConLourdes: 1) that the young LatinX entering the industry understand that they are represented at the top levels; and, 2) that we work to increase that representation. We have much talent to showcase, and much more to cultivate."
