More About Havan
In 2013, Havan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Emory University where she double-majored in Spanish and Religion. Upon graduation, she interned with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) Atlanta in their bilingual Childcare Micro-Enterprise Business Program that sought to educate and train entrepreneurial refugee women to establish their own at-home childcare businesses. Her work with the IRC inspired her to continue serving the immigrant community by becoming an AmeriCorps Member in North Carolina’s ACCESS Project in which over an 11-month period she dedicated over 1,700 hours of community service to the refugee community in the Triangle. At the completion of her term of service, she worked as Lutheran Services Carolinas’ Reception and Placement Program Case Manager to coordinate basic needs and core service provisions for newly-arrived refugees. Havan’s experiences on the development side of working with the immigrant community enhanced her desire to learn more about the powerful impact one can have in the legal sphere. As such, she began working with a local organization as an immigration paralegal before joining Hatch Rockers in December 2016. She is passionate about participating in the protection of immigrants’ rights through the knowledge and application of the law.
