WHO AM I?

On the Latin American side, I grew up in Buenos Aires, was the valedictorian of the Di Tella Law School, I’ve been an associate at a law firm in Buenos Aires and have resolved complex international cases. On the American side, I received my Masters in Law from Stanford and lived in Silicon Valley, I was a research fellow at Columbia and lived in New York, I’ve been working with American companies for a decade — and, perhaps most importantly, my husband and two children are American.
