Facts

“My goal is to complete the Law Office Study Program, pass the Vermont Bar Exam, and practice law here in Vermont, with a focus on contracts or advocacy.”

My position as a paralegal is integral to the development of my legal studies and to fulfillment of my lifelong passion for a career in law. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from my colleagues and continue to expand my knowledge and experience in this field.
