A native of Michigan, Rebekah specializes in employment-based immigration and has assisted both multinational corporations and small companies in sponsoring highly-skilled foreign nationals to work and live in the United States.
Prior to joining Palmer Rey, Rebekah graduated with honors from the University of Michigan in 2015 (Go Blue!) and spent three years living and working on the West Coast. In that time, she developed a passion for working with the immigrant community while volunteering at an immigrants rights nonprofit. Rebekah also worked as a paralegal at a large immigration law firm where she prepared hundreds of successful employment-based visa petitions for a large tech company based in Silicon Valley.
Currently, Rebekah works with all of the attorneys at Palmer Rey on a variety of case types relating to employment-based and investor visas, consular matters, and deportation relief. She has experience preparing employment-based petitions in the H-1B, L-1, TN, H-3, EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 categories as well as unique B visa cases, such as B1 in lieu of H3 applications.
In September 2018, Rebekah will move back to the West Coast to pursue her J.D. degree at the University of Washington School of Law.
