Gloria Ortiz-Soto was born in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico. She moved to Detroit, Michigan when she was 10 years old.
Gloria’s passion for immigration grew when her husband from Guatemala adjusted his status in 1995. The process was very challenging. She will work on your case with the same passion and attention to detail as she did for her husband.
In her free time, Gloria enjoys missionary work. She has been to Guatemala, Venezuela, Dominican Republic and India on missionary trips. Her travels have allowed her to love and learn about different cultures while coming in contact with the needs of people.
According to Jawaharlal Nehru, “Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit.” This assertion has proven true as she looks back on her missionary work experience.
At a very early age Gloria knew she wanted to be a paralegal. This spurred her to receive her associates degree in paralegal studies in 2012 from Everest University, Florida and become a Notary Public in 2015.
Experience with the Center for U.S. Immigration Services (CFUIS)
Gloria joined CFUIS in July 2017. She leads the paralegal team, among other important tasks.
