I am delighted to be on the team as a paralegal at Yacobozzi Drakatos! I grew up in Tiffin, Ohio, and was the daughter of a local business owner. My mother is from Germany, so I spent many childhood summers in Germany visiting relatives and traveling other parts of Europe.Read More
Great Law Firm, for personal and professional reasons, I recommend this law firm.
I held onto the travel bug during my early adult years, touring, and studying in Europe and the Middle East, and North Africa. I hold a bachelor’s degree in German Language and Literature and International Studies from Heidelberg University in Tiffin Ohio, and a Master of Arts in Arab Studies from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. I began my professional career working for the city government in New York City, and later in Washington, DC at a political advocacy organization for Americans of Arab descent. I then took on the challenge of being a stay-at-home parent for 10 years, moving back to Ohio, in the meantime. Wanting to reenter the workforce, I enrolled in the Post-Baccalaureate Paralegal Certificate Program at Capital University in Columbus. I worked as a paralegal intern for Yacobozzi Drakatos before joining the team in January 2021. I am grateful to have been chosen to work with this group of legal professionals, as they are committed to attaining justice for their clients while being dedicated to ensuring an instructive and supportive working environment for their staff. I look forward to extending that sentiment to our clients and guide them through the legal process, as Eleana and Dennis work to obtain the remedies our clients deserve. I live in New Albany with my husband and our daughter, and we have a cat and a dachshund. When we are not traveling overseas or to the East Coast, we are avid homebodies and enjoy doing minor home-improvement projects and transforming our yard into a Certified Wildlife Habitat; watching movies and documentaries (mostly about space and nature); and I plan to take up watercolor painting, and to return to learning Spanish. I speak German and Arabic, though I am rusty with the latter. My family also enjoys sledding and being active outside in the Winter, and biking, fishing, kayaking, and taking advantage of the fabulous metro parks in Columbus and those in New Albany, during Spring and Summer.
