As the daughter of Nicaraguan immigrants, Drea appreciates both how lucky she has been and how easily someone’s life can change due to unlucky circumstances outside of their control. She believes the law is a tool to minimize the role of luck in people’s lives. She pursued a career in workers’ rights to secure just outcomes for clients and create systemic change by holding employers accountable, curbing workplace exploitation, and empowering workers to advocate for themselves.

Drea received her J.D. from U.C. Berkeley School of Law in 2020, where she served as Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law, Co-Director of the Workers’ Rights Clinic, Co-Founder of Catholics at Berkeley Law, and Secretary of La Alianza (formerly La Raza Law Students Association). She also served clients in the Wage Justice Clinic and the Berkeley Immigration Group Detention Outreach Project. During law school, Drea externed for the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Administrative Law Judges; Legal Aid at Work; and a Bay Area workers’ rights law firm. She graduated with Pro Bono Honors with Highest Distinction and with a Public Interest and Social Justice Certificate. Prior to joining Hunter Pyle Law, Drea was a Law Fellow at the Impact Fund, where she worked on impact litigation, research, training, and amicus briefs in support of social justice.

Before pursuing a legal career, Drea was an English teacher and debate coach for Miami-Dade County Public Schools. She received her Master of Science in Education and Social Change with an Award of Academic Merit from the University of Miami. She graduated with honors from the University of Chicago, where she double majored in International Studies and Romance Languages and Literatures.
