Meet Jade Pearce, the newly hired Legal Data Analyst at Garvish Immigration Law Group, LLC. Jade is from Chenzhou, China and currently lives in Memphis, Tennessee with the intention of moving to Atlanta, Georgia in the coming month.

After being adopted in 1997 at 11 months old from China, Jade received a U.S. green card before undergoing the citizen naturalization process at 2 years old. Jade grew up with her sister, also adopted from China, and two brothers adopted from India in a very open and diverse household. Taking trips back to China and India as children really cemented the connection she had to her country of origin. This unique personal immigration story fueled her passion for promoting multiculturalism, especially as it relates to Sino-U.S. relations.

During her undergraduate studies at Furman University, where she earned a B.A. in politics and international affairs, Jade studied abroad and interned in cities such as Singapore, Brussels, and Shanghai. She enrolled in many Chinese language, literature, and history courses. Furthering her studies and interests, Jade pursued a joint MSc degree in International Relations with Peking University and the London School of Economics, spending the first year of the master’s program in Beijing and the second year in London. After recently graduating from her post-graduate studies, she accepted a position at Garvish Immigration, focusing on tracking marketing analytics and internal business analytics for the firm.

Jade is excited to start with Garvish Immigration, where her personal background and academic studies will add to such an innovative, culturally diverse law firm. In addition to her dual role as Legal Data Analyst and Marketing Assistant, Jade will be helping to spearhead the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee as one of our Peer Review editors. We are very much looking forward to working with Jade at the Happiest Law Firm in America!

“I believe that people thrive in a work environment where they are accepted and appreciated. Garvish immigration definitely hits this mark!

Long-lasting motivation and excellent job performance come naturally once you find what you most care about and where you are happiest.”
