I'm an attorney, activist and community organizer, as well as an out and proud member of the disability & LGBTQ+ communities.  My passion on the issue of ending abuse and neglect of youth with disabilities in schools and treatment facilities stems from my own experiences with involuntary medical treatment and bullying, and led me to go to law school.  I've pursued my goal of using legal advocacy to address these problems ever since. I returned to Western Massachusetts in 2017 to begin my own law practice focusing on disability, youth and transgender rights.  When I'm not working, I'm probably crafting, playing Dungeons & Dragons, listening to history podcasts, or watching Netflix with my partner and three feline roommates.
