Dr. Natalia Kirchner
Hello, my name is Dr. Natalia Kirchner.
Originally from Peru, I immigrated to the U.S. in 1996. Prior to my arrival, I received both my Bachelor’s Degree in Politics and Juris Doctorate from the Universidad de Lima, where I graduated in the top ten of my class with honors. During my law school program I worked as a teacher, providing Spanish grammar instruction to students who were applying for university admission. I was also a Law Clerk for the Department of Justice of Peru. After law school, I completed the bar exam and was awarded an outstanding degree for my exemplary performance on the exam. Upon arriving in the U.S., I continued my legal studies at Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center, where I received a second Juris Doctorate.
After my admission to the Florida Bar, I joined the Department of Juvenile Justice in July, 2001. Initially, I represented the Department in cases referred to as Children in Need of Services; these cases result from children who are ungovernable, truant or runaways. I also represented the interests of the Department in matters of delinquency cases in court. Currently, I represent the Department in the Labor and Employment Division as a supervising attorney.
Another very important professional goal of mine was to continue to teach. I am so glad I had the opportunity to join the Valencia College team.
It is so important to me to stand against injustice and be vocal. We all have different abilities and we should use them not only for our benefit, but also to be helpful to others. Let’s continue to build a more just world. Together, we can make a difference!
