Board Member, JKPPA
Selah Wyche is a litigation attorney, born in Upstate New York and raised in Northern Virginia. As a committed advocate for the underprivileged, Selah is the founder, president, and sole practitioner of Selah Wyche P.C., a law firm devoted exclusively to Immigration Law.
Before opening her law firm, Selah worked with Jeff and Lynn Kornblau. She observed their passion for helping their clients with their health care issues. Selah's interest in joining the JKPPA board stems from her witnessing
firsthand how minorities and immigrants are often unaware of how to obtain health care in the U.S. She is dedicated to equity in health care and aims to make certain that underserved populations receive the medical care they need. Selah is enthusiast about the patient advocacy mission of JKPPA.
With a strong desire to help others, she attended the University of Pittsburgh as an academic scholarship recipient, receiving an AmeriCorps fellowship for her work in training underprivileged children in urban areas with literacy. Within three years, she graduated with a Certificate in Russian and European Studies and a double Bachelor's Degree in English Literature and Russian. At Indiana University-Bloomington, she obtained a Master's degree in Comparative Literature with a concentration on Race, Ethnicity, Gender, Sexuality in Russian and Literature, and Philosophy in French and African Diaspora, which led to her presenting at numerous conferences. She earned a J.D. in Law at Temple University, Beasley School of Law, receiving the Nelson Mandela Scholarship for her research and academic skills.
During her spare time, Selah Wyche enjoys traveling abroad, reading, singing in her church's choir, and watching live performances of her favorite bands and musicians. She loves spending time with friends and her dog Sansa, which translates to "Sun" and even "Sunshine" in Russian, which she is fluent in.
