(802) 775-7141


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. Since then, my practice has expanded, and I enjoy solving problems that arise from the complex relationships between people and property (real, personal, and intellectual [trademarks, copyright]), including international law and conflict of laws among states and countries, divorce, transfer taxes, business organization and succession (corporations & LLC’s), as well as family farms.

Past president of the Vermont Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (2017-2018).
