I'm a clinical manager, advocate and support group leader for those with limb loss and limb difference in Massachusetts. I'm also a creative who enjoys painting, writing and acting. I graduated from Tufts University in 2004 with a Bachelor's degree in Clinical Psychology and went on to attend law school at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in New York City, graduating in 2011. I'm licensed to practice law in both NY and Massachusetts. I also sit on the boards of two non-profit advocacy groups, the National Association for the Advancement of Orthotics and Prosthetics and the American Trauma Society.
I'm a connector: I like to connect people, ideas and patterns to help bring meaning and value to the world. I'm skilled in communicating, public speaking, writing, interpreting laws, project management, team leadership, peer mentorship and collaboration. I also advocate on behalf of those with limb loss and limb difference at the state and federal level to ensure adequate protections for our community. On the Meyers-Briggs I'm considered an ENFJ, also known as the Protagonist, who is described as a passionate leader who enjoys reaching out and inspiring others to achieve and to do good in the world and to work together to improve ourselves and our communities.
I'm committed to life-long learning, growth and innovation. As a result of my own experiences, actions and struggles, I had to rebuild myself and the path of my life following a major trauma. One of my goals is to support and uplift others facing a similar process. I also seek creative solutions to problems through bringing people together and working collaboratively as part of a team. When we work together to support each other, we're able to not only advocate for ourselves, but to build strong communities as well.
