How much do you really know about your immigration attorney and paralegal?
Many of our clients may know Senior Business Immigration Paralegal, Tina Huber. You would know her best if you have an EB-2 NIW, EB-5, or O-1 visa through our office, as she specializes in helping people immigrate in the Extraordinary Ability, Outstanding Researcher and Professor, and National Interest Waiver categories. Tina also focuses her expertise helping foreign investors, whether through the E-2 or EB-5 investor programs.
In continuation of our Get to Know series, we asked Tina a series of questions. We want you to get to know Tina, one of the employees at our firm who works so diligently on our clients’ cases.
Here’s what Tina has to say:
Where are you from?
North Texas, from a small town about two (2) hours northwest of Dallas.
What made you choose Bashyam Shah, and how long have you been with the firm?
I have been working with Murali Bashyam since June 2006. True story: my husband had emailed my resume to 11 firms in the Raleigh area and Murali was the first to answer.
Whats your favorite vacation spot?
I don’t think I have found my personal favorite vacation spot yet, but I always have a great time at Myrtle Beach.
What is your favorite TV series and why?
“Jack Ryan” because of the constant twists and turns, and “The Witcher” because I could watch Henry Cavill and his muscles all day.
If you could have one superpower what would it be?
Telekinesis; I would cut my driving time by at least half.
What is the most important part of your job?
Paying attention to detail, especially supporting evidence. Fact checking is a big part of this job.
What are three things still on your bucket list?
Seeing Niagara Falls, skydiving at least once, and driving a Tesla across the US.
Who do you admire and why?
I admire women that are able to transcend destructive cultural norms and are bringing about change for the next generation.
What is your favorite quote?
As a military brat and the wife of a former servicemen, my favorite quote is “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” by President John F. Kennedy. To me that includes being a good US ambassador, no matter where in the world you are.
As Tina mentioned, “ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country” was part of the inauguration speech of President John F. Kennedy in 1961. In this, he challenged the American public to contribute to the public good. The immigrant communities that exist within the U.S. and the foreign nationals who obtain visas to live and work in the U.S., through their work and innovation in business, society, and culture, continue to contribute to the public good, thereby improving the benefit and well-being of American society as a whole.
We welcome immigrants and their families into the U.S. as they are part of the fabric of the growing and changing American society.
We hope you got to know an important member of our team, Tina Huber, a little better.
