Catalina Rodriguez was born in Sunnyside, WA and grew up in Prosser and Grandview. She graduated from Grandview High School and soon after, she began her teaching career at a local preschool. She obtained her AA in Early Childhood Education (ECE) from Yakima Valley Community College and earned her Bachelor’s degree from WSU in 2006. After teaching preschool for seven years, she decided to make a career change and became a paralegal focusing on immigration law. With ten years of paralegal experience, Catalina is looking forward to exploring other practice areas. Catalina is always on the go attending her daughter’s art shows, soccer and softball activities. When soccer and softball season is over, they enjoy watching movies, going to the batting cages, and making slime.
