Monica also has successfully handled many requests for parole entry into the U.S. and deferred action authorizations based on medical need or other compelling circumstances. Over the years, Monica has amassed a particular expertise in advising IT consulting firms on H-1B compliance issues, assisting scientific researchers in seeking national interest waivers, and helping students with requests for reinstatement.
Formerly an avid runner and tennis player, Monica now enjoys spending her time fitness boxing and walking her wheaten terrier. Monica is conversational in Spanish and possesses a limited working proficiency in Punjabi.
