I am a graduate of the University of Massachusetts, North Dartmouth, where I received my B.A. in Humanities and Social Sciences. After a successful career working for law firms of varying size in different practice areas, processing and post-closing hundreds of residential real estate transactions for a mortgage company and working for the federal government analyzing and resolving complex title issues on federal lands, I attended Vermont Law School and graduated in 2004, cum laude.
While at Vermont Law School, my studies concentrated in the areas of Environmental and Natural Resources law and policy. I competed and was chosen for one of six positions as a Student Clinician in the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic. Following graduation, I passed the Vermont Bar in 2004 and practiced law in Vermont until moving to Alaska. While in Vermont, I worked for the Vermont Department of Labor on worker safety enforcement actions, eventually being specially appointed to serve as part of a team to reach an equitable and fair settlement in one of the largest worker safety enforcement settlement in Vermont history. I also worked as a contract attorney for a private law firm on a plaintiff’s consumer rights class action lawsuit.
I moved to Juneau in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the community of Juneau and the people of Southeast Alaska. I passed the Alaska Bar in 2008 and worked as a contract attorney for several environmental non-profit organizations and private attorneys. Immediately prior to opening my law office, I worked in the public policy arena for ANDVSA where my primary focus was on regulatory and statutory analysis and interpretation and drafting complex agreements with various stakeholders.
My practice focuses on Probate, Real Estate, Property, Simple Wills and providing Unbundled Legal Services.
