Clinical Instructor, Family Practice
Started in 2007
“When I came to the Bureau, I was surprised that it felt like a legal services office, not like a student workgroup.”

What were you doing before coming the Bureau?
I worked in the family and children’s units at the Legal Assistance Corporation of Central Massachusetts in Worcester (now called Community Legal Aid).

What was your childhood dream job?
I was in second grade when Ronald Reagan was shot. Until then, it had been had my intention to be president, but I decided it wasn’t worth it. My father is a judge and my mother was a teacher. Both of those were always career goals, and in some ways I ended up doing both.

What surprised you most when you came to HLAB?
How similar it was to LACCM. It feels like a legal services office, not like a student workgroup.

Tips on work-life balance?
Figure out the thing that rejuvenates you. Taking time to do that thing helps you work when you’re back at it.

Who would play you in a movie?
When I was a kid, my parents told me that Amy Irving would play me in a movie. I’m not sure I have ever thought I’d be interesting enough for a movie…
