Lecturer in Legal Studies
In addition to teaching at Brandeis, I am a practicing health care attorney.
I have been practicing law for over 15 years. I've worked for several hospitals, health care providers, and academic research and development organizations. I work “in-house” – meaning that my only client is the corporation that I work for. I don’t ever go to court. Instead, I’m essentially business lawyer with a specialty in health care. My expertise includes regulatory compliance, risk management, ethics, and patient rights.
I am a graduate of Wellesley College (I double majored in History and Psychology), Boston College Law School, and the Harvard School of Public Health. During college, I rowed port on the Varsity Crew. Prior to law school, I worked for 2 years, first as a paralegal and then with health care policy researchers.
I was born in California, raised in rural Connecticut, and now live in Watertown, MA. I enjoy in-line skating, mentoring, and exploring with my husband and our two lively rescued dogs – Minnie Cooper and Cora.
