Nancy was born in El Salvador and came to the United States at a young age. As an immigrant, she experienced first-hand the difficulties of family separation and other struggles immigrant communities face. For this reason, she pursued a law degree to be a better advocate of immigrant rights. At UC Hastings, she participated in the Refugee and Human Rights Clinic, was Co-Chair of La Raza Law Students Association, was an active member of the Hastings Students for Immigrants’ Rights and Partnership Initiative & Legal Aid to Rural Communities, was a Social Justice Lawyering Concentrator, and a Senior Articles Editor of the Hastings Race and Poverty Law Journal. Nancy has also advocated for immigrants, low-wage workers, and farmworkers at various nonprofits, government agencies and in private practice. Nancy is committed to public interest and working for underserved groups. She is fluent in Spanish. Nancy received a B.A. in Sociology and Spanish Literature from UC Berkeley in 2008 and a J.D. from UC Hastings College of the Law in 2016. She is a member of the California bar.
