Professional Duties

  • Advise the Judicial Board


Damariscotta, ME


I graduated Middlebury College with a joint major in Women & Gender Studies and History, and a minor in Philosophy. I have a law degree from the University of Maine School of Law. 


I grew up in Damariscotta, Maine, which is located about thirty minutes north of Bowdoin on the coast. After college, I moved west to Colorado where I attempted to be a ski bum.  Two years later, I returned to sea level to attend Maine Law. I held two clerkships after law school, including one with the Honorable John A. Woodcock, Jr. (Bowdoin ’72). After practicing employment law for several years, I was fortunate to join Bowdoin’s Office of Development and Alumni Relations, where I worked on alumni issues concerning diversity and inclusion among other projects.
