Working on Behalf of Paralegals throughout the State of Vermont


Originally from Central Ohio, I obtained my bachelor's degree in business administration from Kent State University (cum laude).  After years working in corporate retail and the hospitality field, I obtained a Certificate of Paralegal Studies from Burlington College and began my legal career in 2013, primarily at Paul Frank + Collins, P.C. where I worked in the areas of residential and commercial real estate, as well as immigration law.  Currently, I am a litigation paralegal at the law firm of Heilmann, Ekman, Cooley & Gagnon, Inc., and focus on assisting in the defense of professionals in liability claims.  I also manage the firm's records for its large profile of corporate clients.

In 2017, I achieved the PCCE® CORE Registered Paralegal designation from the National Federation of Paralegal Associations, and am an Associate Member of the Vermont Bar Association.

In my role as VPO Board Secretary, I am responsible for taking and maintaining the meeting minutes of the Board.  I am thrilled to help foster the importance of the paralegal profession.
