Claimed Lawyer Profile
Summary

I have been practicing immigration law in the mid-coast region of Maine since 2013, after almost 20 years working in natural resources conservation law and policy. My interest in immigration is both professional and personal. I was a landed immigrant (permanent resident) of Canada for several years and, after returning to the U.S. adopted both of my children internationally. I love learning and working across cultures and am a strong believer in the need to attract new immigrants to this region.
