Ms. Gonzalez knows first hand the critical need of professional help with the immigration process.  She was born in the Philippines and migrated to the U.S. with her family at the age of 12.  This early life experience, along with countless others over the years, has developed within her a deep compassion for other immigrants and a desire to help them.  She also loves learning about the different cultures and countries of her clients, which has sparked a love of international travel.
