Silvia joined Ehlers in 2017 with a background in education and business administration. Her primary responsibilities as a Disclosure Coordinator include coordinating legal documentation, gathering, analyzing and organizing data necessary to produce official statements. She works with Ehlers’ clients across Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Silvia was born in Guatemala, adopted as a child and grew up in White Bear Lake, MN and currently resides in Maplewood. She began gymnastics at the age of 2 and played competitive soccer starting at the age of 8 in a boys league, eventually joining a women’s semi-professional league in her teenage years. Both activities led her to become a soccer referee, embark on a 20 year career as a gymnastics coach, and cherish her current role as a USAG judge for women’s gymnastics.
In her spare time, Silvia enjoys painting and drawing, sewing, playing soccer (and cheering on the MN United), doing almost anything outdoors, spending time with family and eating tacos.
