Shakiba Malek-Ahmadi grew up in Woodbury, Connecticut, and graduated from Nonnewaug High School at 16. She went on to attend the University of Connecticut where she is currently studying to get her Bachelor’s degree in Urban and Community Studies. After she graduates she will go to law school and complete her dream of becoming an attorney.
She has been working as a paralegal for the last 2 years, primarily specializing in Workers’ Compensation and now Family matters. This field has been her inspiration to pursue law, as she believes that just because a family may separate, it does not mean that they must be broken.
She played on her high school’s football team and is a huge Washington Commanders fan. When she isn’t at work or school, she enjoys playing golf, painting, and reading.
