About me

 I am a Rhode Island native. After earning my Bachelor's Degree in English and American Studies from Colby College in Waterville, Maine in 2000, I worked in the field of higher education for several years. I graduated from Roger Williams University School of Law in 2007 and passed the bar in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts that same year. I am an active member of the Rhode Island Bar Association’s Volunteer Lawyer’s Program and Elderly Pro Bono Program as well as a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the Academy of Special Needs Planners.     

 In myfree time, I enjoy taking advantage of Rhode Island’s beautiful coastline and spending time with my husband and our golden retriever, Murphy.
