The son of immigrants from Peru and the Dominican Republic, Kenneth grew up in Queens, New York. At age 11, his mother took a job with Grady Health System and the family relocated to Fayetteville in the south Atlanta suburbs, where Kenneth eventually attended Our Lady of Mercy Catholic High School. For college, he headed to Williamsburg, VA., studying English at the College of William and Mary. Drawn to customer service, Kenneth stayed in Virginia for a few years after graduation, working as a front desk agent at the Omni Hotel in Richmond.
After deciding to return home to Atlanta, Kenneth sought out jobs in immigration law, hoping to give back to the community he grew up in. He first heard about Antonini & Cohen from a friend, who’d recommended Carolina for a case involving a family member. In the fall of 2018, Kenneth saw a job opening and applied, joining the firm that October as an Administrative Assistant.
Kenneth’s fluency in Spanish, his proficiency in French and his background in customer service have made him a valuable addition to the team. “I’m always excited to see the partners in action,” he says. “I get to gain hands-on experience and do work that inspires me.”
When he’s not at the office, Kenneth likes to watch English Premier League soccer, play his guitar and compose music on his laptop. For lunch, you can often find him at Harmony Vegetarian, an Asian restaurant with a comprehensive vegetarian menu. “It’s something even a non-vegetarian would enjoy just as much,” says Kenneth.
