I grew up in New Jersey (exit 18 off the Turnpike). I attended Princeton University (exit 9 off the Turnpike), and a few years later, Boston College Law School. After law school, I began my legal career at a small firm in New Hampshire called Nelson Kinder Mosseau & Saturley, where I worked primarily with college and university clients. In 2007 I came to Seyfarth as a member of the legal team in Boston. I practiced in Seyfarth's Boston Office for 5 years where I worked on wage and hour class actions and single plaintiff discrimination cases. I left Seyfarth in 2012 to work with the Massachusetts House of Representatives, where I am now the Deputy Chief Counsel. My job at the State House has been a whirlwind of new opportunities. On any given day I find myself working on employment law, ethics compliance, and new legislation. Seeing how "a bill becomes a law" gives me a whole new appreciation for the practice.
One of my fondest/funniest memories from my time at Seyfarth is when a client told Richard Alfred, our practice leader, that the reason his laptop was not working was because it was filled with "bad vibes" and that it needed some sort of "holistic cleansing." I enjoy keeping in touch with many of Seyfarth attorneys and alumnae all over the country, and particularly those in the Boston office.
