What thrills you about working at Hoge Fenton?

What thrills me the most about working at Hoge Fenton is having the privilege to work for a firm that truly values its employees. When I first started at Hoge Fenton, I was a mother of three young children. Hoge Fenton provided me the opportunity to develop my professional career as well as afforded me the flexibility to be there for my children. Twenty years later, I am honored and grateful to be part of a firm that genuinely cares about their employees, clients, and the community in which they serve.

Why is Hispanic Heritage Month important to you?

Hispanic Heritage Month is important because it allows for the recognition of an underrepresented group of people. It signifies the sacrifice that my parents made when they chose to leave behind their entire lives in Chile, and move to the United States so that my sister and I could have the chance at better opportunities in life. I witnessed them both work extremely hard to give back to a country to which they were so thankful. As a first-generation American, I cherish the culture and values I learned from my parents, and take pride in being able to pass them on to my children so that they don’t forget their heritage.
