Vanitha oversees VLink’s global legal practice and hiring policies. Her forward-thinking attitude helps solve complex immigration issues, especially those related to staffing.
Outside the firm, Vanitha volunteers for the International Institute of Connecticut, a statewide nonprofit human services agency that helps provide new immigrants and refugees with services to help them become self-sufficient, integrated, and contributing members of the community. The Institute also provides special services to victims of serious crimes such as human trafficking, torture, and domestic violence. She also volunteers to provide immigration counsel to military service members and their families, efforts that helped inspire the American Immigration Lawyer Association to name her a Pro Bono Champion.
Vanitha has a Bachelor of Law from SDM Law College in India and a Master of Laws from the University of Connecticut School of Law. Her favorite quote is from the Russian-American writer-philosopher Ayn Rand: “The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.”
