Ryan has been an attorney who focuses on estate planning and immigration, since 2009. She received her J.D. from Gonzaga University School of law. In 2016, she received a Legal Master's in Taxation from the University of San Diego School of Law, with a focus on cross-border tax consequences. She thought that by gaining this additional knowledge, she can better serve her immigration clients who are starting businesses in the United States, as well as her U.S. clients and foreign national clients who own assets both in the United States and overseas.
