International Senior Tax Analyst // Arthur J. Gallagher & Co.

Please provide a description of your practice.

International Tax Law

Why are you a member of the WBAI?

I am a member of the WBAI because I want to connect with others in the area who are like me – those who identify as women lawyers from the wonderful State of Illinois.

What do you think is the best way to empower women in law?

I believe that women should be given an equal opportunity to shine based on their merits. They should be given a seat at the table if they earned it, a platform for their ideas, an avenue where their voices to be heard, a strong support system, resources that they need, and legal protections that may be necessary.

What are you most looking forward to in the following year, personally/professionally?

Professionally, I am a member of the Alabama State Bar. Before the year ends and since I will be qualified by then, my goal is to finally be able to waive-in to Illinois or Washington DC.

Tell us something interesting about you.

I am a multi-jurisdictional lawyer, admitted to practice law in the United States and the Philippines. I have a Master of Laws in Taxation from Georgetown University Law Center with a Certificate in International Taxation and Certificate in Legal English. I worked for almost 8 years in the Tax Advisory Services Group of Reyes Tacandong & Co. (RSM Philippines). I also had experience working at the General Legal Division, Office of Legal Affairs of the United Nations Headquarters Office. I then joined The World Bank Group as a Consultant of the International Finance Corporation’s International Tax Unit. Currently, I work at the global headquarters of Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. as an International Senior Tax Analyst.

I am currently a member of the American Bar Association (ABA) – Alabama State Bar and the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP). I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Social Sciences, Major in Behavioral Studies from the University of the Philippines Manila where I graduated as a Cum Laude.
