Natalya Caraballo grew up as the granddaughter of Puerto Rican immigrants in the East Bay. She developed a passion for civic engagement and political discourse when she studied at the University of Chicago, graduating with a degree in Political Science and Romance Languages and Literatures. After graduation, Natalya migrated to Madrid, Spain where she worked as a bilingual educator for the Ministry of Education and expanded her traditional views of immigration.
Natalya returned to the Bay Area in 2013 and began her career in immigration law as a legal caseworker at the Immigration Center for Women and Children. Natalya recently joined The Law Office of Robert B. Jobe as a paralegal, where she continues to think critically and help guide her clients through complex immigration law.
SJC’s holistic approach to legal representation inspires Natalya to remain conscious about her work. She is excited to bring her experiences to the SJC Board and promote its community centered mission to legal representation.
