About me

My practice focuses on real estate. I handle residential and commercial closings, assesment appeals, zoning issues, and landlord/tenant law. 


I began my practice at Shipman and Goodwin, working as an associate in their Land Use division where I represented both developers and municipalities before zoning boards and in superior court.


I left Shipman and Goodwin to pursue public service at the State of Connecticut's Legislative Commissioner's office (LCO). At LCO I advised the planning and development committee and the housing committee. I drafted bills and statutes.


In 2015, I left LCO to join my husband at McKeen Law Firm as a partner. At McKeen Law Firm, I handle real estate closings, assessment appeals, and land use cases. I'm currently representing the City of Hartford in a number of appeals pertaining to a zone change.


Please let me know how I can help you. I'm here to listen and help you with real estate.
