Get to Know Lina
What is your greatest personal achievement?
I immigrated to the U.S. as a child with my family, and it was always my dream to become an attorney. I worked full-time in law school and attained my law degree. This is a constant reminder to me that any goal you set can be achieved.
Which vacation spot would you recommend, and why?
I visited Amelia Island, FL where I had the incredible opportunity to go horseback riding on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean! Another great spot is Prescott, AZ which is a quaint little town with beautiful scenery.
Action, Drama, Comedy, Foreign Film?
I love comedies; I can never turn down a good laugh.
