Ms. Viera had a 20-year career path that led up to her bilingual private investigations practice.

After earning MAs in Spanish and library science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she worked as a law librarian, first at a private law firm and then at the University of Puerto Rico Law School Library (ABA accredited). She then spent several years at libraries on the U.S.-Mexico border before moving to Seattle to accept another library position. After 16 years in the field, she changed careers in 2006 and became a court-certified Spanish interpreter. She received her p.i. license in 2011 while enrolled in the UW p.i. certificate program. Her work in Washington courts, together with her law library and research background, give her two decades of additional experience to apply to her clients’ investigative needs.
