Biography

I was born and raised in Arizona, have a B.A. in International Relations and a Master of Urban Affairs from Boston University, and studied at the American University in Cairo, Egypt.

Among other experiences, I worked on programs and policy in Massachusetts state government and spent two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Benin, West Africa, where I helped found a credit union. I took the Law School Admission Test in Ghana and returned to the U.S.A. in 2009. In 2012, I interned at the Vermont Superior Court – Environmental Division and graduated cum laude from Vermont Law School, where in my third year I taught legal writing as a Dean’s Fellow. I then joined this firm as an elder-law associate and focus on elder law and property law, including estate planning (including Medicaid, Veterans’ benefits, and special needs), trusts, probate, and real estate.

President-elect of the Vermont Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (2016-2017).
