Disability and Civil Rights Advocate, Law Student, and Worker's Rights Advocate in Boston, Massachusetts
I'm passionate about combating inequality and working with individuals of all backgrounds and identities to strengthen communities. I have nearly 8 years of experience writing and editing, with an emphasis on persuasive communication, editorial and opinion writing, and marketing. I thrive in diverse and fast-paced environments, and excel at interpersonal communication and customer service.
I'm a 2L at the Boston University School of Law who is currently representing indigent clients as part of the Boston University Civil Litigation Program clinic. I also do research on Title IX, due process, and sexual assault. This past summer, I interned at the Disability Law Center where I worked on housing, employment, health care and special education issues. Before law school, I was a disability advocate focused on nursing home transition at the Boston Center for Independent Living.
Some of the organizations I've previously worked and volunteered with include the Asheville Citizen-Times, Catholic Social Services, the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network, the Paulist Center, the Brown University Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and the Brown University Swearer Center for Public Service. I have worked and volunteered abroad in Brazil and Ecuador, and am comfortable and confident working across linguistic and cultural barriers.
I'm ever true to Brown University (A.B. 2010, History and Latin American Studies) and I'm a proud AmeriCorps*VISTA Alum.
