Prior to LCYC, Naiomy’s experience includes an externship with the Northwest Justice Project (NJP) in Walla Walla and an internship with the Youth Advocacy Clinic (YAC) at the Ronald A. Peterson Law Clinic in Seattle. During her time at NJP, she assisted low-income individuals who were dealing with family law and landlord/tenant issues.

While with YAC, she participated in numerous trainings surrounding Youth Advocacy Representation, worked on a Special Immigrant Juvenile Status case, and handled a juvenile delinquent case.

Before law school, Naiomy worked as a legal assistant/paralegal for over 10 years. She has been exposed to many different areas of law, but her goal has always been to advocate for the unique legal rights of children and youths. She is passionate, dedicated, and eager to help youths in need and advance their legal rights through holistic, community-based legal advocacy.
