Question & Answer

Q: What accomplishments are you most proud of?

A: I am proud of my ability to balance work-life with family life. When I started school I had a six month old baby at home. I attended New England School of Law on a full tuition merit scholarship, was an editor on law review, and graduated third in my class.

Q: What are some of your other interests?

A: I absolutely love ballroom dancing, which I did competitively in college. I am an avid country music fan and attend concerts pretty frequently (I’ve seen Keith Urban three times this year!) I also enjoy live sporting events, particularly baseball.

Q: What do find most challenging about litigation work?

A: Time management—litigation work is very fast paced and issues often arise unexpectedly. While challenging, it is also very fun.

Q: What opportunities in law school provided the most opportunities for your professional growth?

A: While in law school, I worked at the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office, the United States Attorney’s Office, and the Massachusetts Appeals Court. These externships were certainly the most rewarding experiences. The opportunity to work side-by-side with lawyers and judges on real cases was exciting and very educational. My legal writing skills improved tenfold.

Q: Where did you grow up?

A: I grew up in Gardner, Massachusetts, a small community directly south of Keene.

Q: What is your educational background?

A: I attended Northeastern University and graduated with Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a minor in History in 2007. I graduated from New England School of Law in 2011.

Q: Why did you choose law as a profession?

A: I like helping people and our legal system is one of the best avenues in which to help people address issues they encounter.

Q: What type of law did you want to practice?

A: I clerked with the New Hampshire Superior Court after law school and really enjoyed that. I knew I wanted to do litigation.

Q: How long have you worked for Abramson, Brown, & Dugan?

A: I began working for the firm in June 2013. I wanted to work for the premier medical malpractice law firm in New Hampshire and when Abramson, Brown & Dugan offered me a position, I accepted it. I spend my time between my office in Keene and the main office in Manchester.

Q: What type of work have you done thus far?

A: I’ve been involved with meeting clients, drafting pleadings, and responding to discovery requests to preparing for and attending depositions. I truly enjoy the work I do and the diversity of malpractice cases with which I’ve been associated. I have learned a great deal working with the attorneys of Abramson, Brown & Dugan.
