Sequoia received two B.A. degrees from Western Washington University: one in Spanish and one interdisciplinary concentration in Law, Diversity, and Justice, titled “Supporting Latinx Families through Law and Community Aid.” In 2019, Sequoia lived in Quito, working with a Venezuelan refugee organization. Their ability to provide aid while creating community and preserving dignity impacted Sequoia greatly.
When she returned to Washington, she began to volunteer with IRIS. Sequoia works as a legal assistant at Chamberlain Sanchez Immigration Law, where she works particularly with survivors of domestic violence. She most enjoys getting to know clients and hearing their stories.
Sequoia lives on her sailboat in Bellingham, with her partner and their husky. She can be found sailing, biking, and hiking in her free time.
