Salma was born in Jerusalem and raised in Ohio before relocating to MENA, where she lived for more than 23 years. With a passion for leading others, Salma taught ESL to high schoolers and at Amideast, helping young adults develop necessary language skills. Salma then spent over 10 years in the not-for-profit humanitarian field. She first worked to support Victims of Torture. As a dedicated advocate, Salma lobbied against torture and cruel and inhuman punishment and detention.
Inspired by her experience, Salma moved to the field of Women's Economic and Social Rights, where she worked tirelessly to promote women's economic and social independence through microfinance and small business management, marketing, and quality standards and control.
After returning to the USA in 2014, she found her home with the Law Offices of Tanya Gomerman as a paralegal - first in the San Francisco office and now in San Jose's satellite office. Salma is dedicated to serving LOTG's clients and being an unrelenting support system for those seeking justice.
