Keiko’s immigrant story is a unique one stemming from a multicultural background of migration and parentage. She was born in Shiga, Japan, but her parents are Peruvian and her mother is of Japanese descent. Keiko lived in Japan and Peru before coming to the United States at the age of seven.
In 2016, Keiko graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Political Science and a minor in History. While studying in Ann Arbor, she worked with the Hispanic Ministry at St. Mary’s Student Parish. At the parish, Keiko also volunteered as an ESL program coordinator and instructor. In her last two years at Michigan, she worked on writing provisional unlawful presence waivers at Immigration Law PLLC.
Prior to joining our office, Keiko worked at Hudson Legal Group, an employment-based immigration firm, as a Legal Evidence Specialist. She is fluent in English and Spanish and currently works with clients assisting them throughout the I-601, I-601A or I-212 waiver process.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, as well as reading and traveling.
