I became a lawyer to help bridge the gap between clients and the intricacies of legal system. Over the years, I have developed strong negotiation and litigation skills which make me an effective advocate for my clients in and out of the courtroom. My practice areas include family law, criminal defense, and landlord tenant matters. I am here to support clients through challenging times and work with them to achieve their goals.

I was born and raised in New Hampshire and graduated from UNH in 2003. Upon graduation, I moved to Arizona where I worked in the sports venues for the Phoenix Suns and Arizona Diamondbacks. I returned to New Hampshire and received my J.D. from Franklin Pierce Law Center (now known as UNH School of Law). I was part of the inaugural class of the Daniel Webster Scholar Program and was admitted to the NH Bar in 2008.

I went on to practice criminal defense with the New Hampshire Public Defender, where I worked for over 13 years representing clients on charges ranging from motor vehicle offenses to homicides and anything in between. I trained and mentored attorneys, provided litigation support, and tried many cases in front of NH juries. I currently sit on the NH Public Defender Board of Directors. I am also a member of the NH Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and completed the National Criminal Defense College Trial Practice Institute.

While I was committed my work at the Public Defender, I wanted the ability to help my clients facing overlapping challenges outside the criminal justice system. I saw a need to provide guidance and representation to clients in the family court for child custody and visitation, restraining orders, and divorce. I joined Tarbell and Brodich to expand my practice areas to offer these services and deliver a more comprehensive level of representation to each and every client.

I live in Concord with my husband, our two children, and our cat, Howard. My favorite times are those spent with family at the lake in the summer and on the ski slopes in the winter. I love watching my kids find their passions, whether it be in school, sports or dance. In my free time, I enjoy working on DIY home projects with my husband, doing puzzles with my kids, and experimenting with new cocktail recipes.
