During the peak of COVID-19, she was presented with her first opportunity to work in immigration law and has loved it since. For KayLeigh, working in immigration law provides the perfect space to work in an area she is passionate about by giving her the chance to assist in the process of helping clients navigate the US immigration system. A Georgia native, she graduated from Agnes Scott College with a Bachelor’s of Arts, double majoring in international relations and anthropology and minoring in Spanish. During her time as an undergrad, she also obtained her Paralegal Certificate from the University of Georgia. She is currently earning her Master of Science in International Conflict Management at Kennesaw State University to pursue her goals of creating a more connected world.
Starting as an intern and earning her way into a full-time position, KayLeigh enjoys working at EIL because it has provided her with a wonderful work environment where she gets to work both for and alongside thoughtful, client-oriented attorneys and staff.
