Legal Assistant Rosa Orellana is a Bay Area Native and obtained her Office Administration Certificate from City College of San Francisco in 2016. Rosa enjoys working at Sally Morin because she is able to utilize both her 10+ years of customer service and her office administrative skills. She loves being a part of the Sally Morin Personal Injury Lawyers team and making a difference in client’s lives by helping provide solutions when they are in a jam.
When Rosa is not working for Sally Morin she is volunteering at her daughter’s school, hiking, and mini road trips along highway one (Carmel, Monterey, & Santa Cruz).
Why did you choose to go into the legal field?
I chose the legal field because I wanted to be part of a team that helps people when they are in a jam. The most rewarding part is when I know we took away the stress a client had with an injury claim.
What’s your favorite food?
My favorite food is Salvadoran caldo de res with extra veggies (Salvadoran beef soup with veggies).
What’s your most treasured family tradition?
My most treasured family tradition is our summer BBQ’s. We work together as a family to prepare my grandmother’s recipes for grilled garlic shrimp and Salvadoran citrus marinated steak. It is a great time for family to connect and builds memories that will last a lifetime!
If you weren’t in the legal field, what would you be doing?
If I weren’t in the legal field, I would have opened my own daycare. When my daughter was in preschool, I was a volunteer. I loved listening to a room full of kids laugh and get excited for the day. I enjoyed being in my daughters’ class because the children wanted to naturally learn about the universe that surrounds them, and it is so awesome to be a part of their learning experience.
Who do you admire most in the world?
I admire my mother & grandmother the most in the world because they taught me at a young age to overcome obstacles, start over, and still be proud of yourself. They both worked so hard for me and my siblings to have the opportunities they did not have, they achieved it and never gave up.
Which fictional character do you relate to most?
If I were a fictional character it would be Disney’s Hua Mulan. Mulan is a resilient character, and she breaks all stereotypes and proves through her actions that women can win battle’s not just men.
What’s your personal motto or philosophy?
Don’t sweat the small stuff and it’s all small stuff, you are what you practice most. – Richard Carlson
