She received the prestigious Gloria Steinem Award for building the leadership and advocacy skills of Latino immigrant domestic workers, empowering them to challenge exploitative employers, on-the-job abuse, and substandard pay.  She has also been awarded multiple recognitions due to her role in the Workplace Project’s defense of the human rights of day laborers and other immigrant workers. She received her JD from New York University School of Law, where she was a recipient of a Public Service Scholarship in recognition of her work with the Latino community.
