Prior to that, Ms. Hashimee was an associate at Immigrants First, PLLC, where she clerked as a law student and first discovered her passion for immigration law.

While at George Mason University Law School, Ms. Hashimee was a member of the Journal of Law, Economics & Policy.

Subsequent to earning her Bachelor of Arts from Washington State University, Ms. Hashimee also interned at the White House Office of Presidential Correspondence as a federal agency liaison, connecting citizens to their government.
