Rachel Louise Ditsego Thompson: Attorney with Poarch Law

Biography

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Rachel grew up in a diverse city and family. Rachel's passion for immigration, culture, and languages stems from her personal experience as she watched her mother go through the naturalization process first hand as a teenager. Her mother hails from Johannesburg, South Africa, and her father hails from Montego Bay, Jamaica. Rachel grew up visiting family in South Africa and Jamaica and knew from an early age that she would like to help immigrants like her parents.

Rachel attended Messiah College, located just outside of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and graduated with honors with a degree in Spanish Business. The half-Spanish, half-Business major allowed her to study abroad for two semesters. During the fall of 2006, Rachel studied at the Universidad de San Francisco located in the Tumbaco Valley, Ecuador and lived with a host family in Quito, Ecuador. The following spring of 2007, Rachel studied at the Universitat de Barcelona while living with a host family in Barcelona, Spain.

Her love for the law and passion for immigrant advocacy grew immensely after she studied abroad. In 2009, Rachel decided to pursue her law degree at Liberty University School of Law in Lynchburg, Virginia. After her first year at Liberty Law, she took a legal internship in Buenos Aires, Argentina and lived there for the summer. While there, she had the opportunity to research law and perfect her Spanish. After her second year, she worked at Commonwealth Catholic Charities (Refugee and Immigration Services) in Roanoke, Virginia.

Rachel graduated from Liberty University School of Law in May 2012. She was actively involved in the International Law Society and Business Transactions and Law Society. She loves meeting new clients and thoroughly enjoys the area of immigration law. She views this area of the law not only as a passion, but also as a calling for her life.
