Amber Ouellette is a recent graduate of Bryan University’s Associate Degree in Paralegal Studies and Litigation Technologies program. As a student, Amber learned techniques for research, which has been critical in her current position. As a Dean's List student, Amber graduated with a job recommendation from BU Paralegal Studies and Litigation Technologies Program Director Nola Wright, J.D.
Amber credits the BU Career Services team for being helpful during her job search. "I immediately began looking for work as a paralegal, and BU's Career Services team found several good positions for me quickly." After interviewing with several companies and law offices, Amber accepted a position at the Law Offices of Chris M. Ingram as a Paralegal for Primary Litigation Counsel.
In her position, Amber is responsible for writing agreements for clients hoping to gain US citizenship. Her work involves researching, consolidating, and submitting 800-page documents to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in favor of each Client's request.
Amber cites that UCIS uses ten characteristics to identify persons who would make great citizens in the United States. Through her tireless work in drafting these documents, she has gained citizenship for many clients.
Amber's education at BU helped her gain the skills necessary to research her clients, including their accomplishments, published works, income, and benefit to society. At BU, she also gained valuable skills in crafting the necessary arguments for these citizenship documents. Through Amber's education and training, she can draft well-researched and written documents proving her Client's value as a United States citizen, thus fast-tracking their applications for citizenship. With her hard work, many of these clients would avoid years of going through the standard citizenship channels. All of Amber's clients were approved and granted US citizenship.
"I am so thankful to Nola for all her help; Bryan University changed my life." With Amber's hard work, she has also changed the lives of her clients.
