Zabrina represents workers’ compensation clients in both North and South Carolina. She is from Washington State where she graduated from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology. After graduating, Zabrina spent two years working at a law firm in Seattle where she assisted Spanish speaking clients. Having enjoyed working with clients who would otherwise not have representation, Zabrina chose to attend law school with the goal of assisting underrepresented and vulnerable communities with their legal issues.
In August 2013 Zabrina began her legal studies at Wake Forest University School of Law. During law school, Zabrina made every effort to participate in pro bono work, eventually being selected as the school’s Pro Bono Immigration Project coordinator and was inducted into Wake Forest’s Pro Bono Honor Society.
In addition to her pro bono work, Zabrina was a member of Wake Forest’s Moot Court team and the school’s American Association for Justice (AAJ) Trial Team. During her two years as a member of the AAJ Team, Zabrina helped lead the team to Nationals for the first time in the school’s history in 2015, and in 2016 helped lead the team to the semi-finals of the National Championship. In recognition of her litigation abilities, Zabrina was inducted into the Order of the Barristers, and was a recipient of Wake Forest’s Robert F. Goldberg Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy upon graduating.
Having grown up as the child of immigrants, Zabrina is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.
Outside of work Zabrina enjoys spending time with her fiancé and their two dogs, hiking along the Blue Ridge Mountains, and learning new recipes.
