I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou

After graduating, she applied that knowledge as a recovery coach and case manager for patients with mental health issues.

Angelica developed an interest in the law during childhood, even seeking to act as a “judge” for her peers to resolve their interpersonal disputes in elementary school. Angelica received a scholarship to attend Mitchell Hamline School of Law where she was on the Dean’s List. During law school, she volunteered at the Minnesota Justice Foundation where she helped self-represented people file for divorce and taught high school students about law. Angelica also served as a legal assistant and legal intern at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.
