Gabriella discovered her passion for immigration advocacy when she began working for a refugee resettlement agency in September 2001. She collaborated with Holy Cross Ministries’ Immigration Department when she worked for the Utah Domestic Violence Council, advocating for immigrant victims of crime. Gabriella went on to earn a joint J.D./M.P.P. from the University of Utah, where she co-founded Kids’ Court, an award-winning after-school program where law students teach at-risk youth about the law and civic engagement. She interned at the Salt Lake Immigration Court, Utah Court of Appeals, United Way and Holy Cross Ministries, where she was hired after law school. Gabriella has represented survivors of human trafficking and violence, as well as clients seeking family-based immigration benefits, and has over 15 years of experience training victim advocates, attorneys, judges, tribes and community members on Immigration and Federal Indian Child Welfare laws and policies. Her mission is to improve access to justice through advocacy and collaboration. Gabriella is married with three children.
