Ana was first published as an undergraduate student by the Boston University Brownstone Journal. When her article on the death penalty was featured on the front page, she was inspired to continue to improve on her writing and eventually apply to law school. Throughout her undergraduate career she honed her writing skills with academics and authors such as Regina Hansen and David S. Palmer. With valuable input and hard work, her writing became more clear and concise; and as a result, she was published twice again in the Brownstone Journal.

After graduating with BAs in Political Science and Spanish Literature, Ana worked for a legal nonprofit in Washington, D.C. where she obtained experience with blog postings, direct mail, newsletter content, press releases, annual reports, and news stories.

Ana enrolled at Duke University School of Law in 2011 and graduated with a J.D. in 2014. During those three years she performed research and writing projects ranging from legal memorandums, appeals briefs, to case studies and white papers. Law school taught her the power each word can carry and the value of precision and accuracy.

After obtaining her J.D., Ana was named a Law Fellow with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute and obtained valuable writing experience both in the nonprofit sector and at federal government agency level. Ana is excited to continue on her journey as a legal and policy writer and strives to constantly become a better version of herself.
