Originally from San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico, Jacky is a trained Spanish Interpreter. She is passionate about helping people as she feels this is part of her life mission. She has done several years of community work within non-profit organizations and law firms, especially with the immigrant community.
Being born a U.S. citizen, and having married someone from Mexico, it gave Jacky the opportunity to learn the struggles of an immigrant from another perspective, one less fortunate than hers, as a born citizen. Yet learning the culture, the values, and kindness of people from Mexico helped her see immigrants as individuals that are fighting for the very same things she is… a better future for their families. As a result, Jacky feels very committed to the mission statement of STERN Law in defending the American dream that belongs to all of us.
