I've worked with the Partnership for Policy Integrity, an environmental policy non-profit. My work with PFPI was focused on biomass energy policy and bringing legal challenges against polluting biomass facilities throughout the United States. I also worked with EcoLaw attorneys helping the Pilgrim Coalition tackle threats to public health and the environment arising from continued operation of Massachusetts' one remaining nuclear power plant, Pilgrim Nuclear Power Station, located in Plymouth, Massachusetts. During proxy season, I work with Attorney Sanford Lewis providing legal research for his solo environmental corporate accountability practice, Strategic Counsel, and in his role as General Counsel to the Investors Environmental Health Network.
As a law student I had the opportunity to complete four full-time legal internships through Northeastern's Cooperative Legal Education Program. Northeastern runs on a quarter schedule, allowing students to alternate each quarter between full-time academic work and full-time legal work in the field of our choosing. In line with my interest in public interest environmental law, I worked at the Sierra Club in San Francisco, the U.S. Department of Justice Environmental Enforcement Section in Washington D.C., and the Conservation Law Foundation in Boston. Many students complete a judicial internship in their first intern quarter to gain exposure to the courts and I followed suit, working with Judge Kern in Middlesex and Essex Superior Courts.
I also squeezed in an internship during my time as a student in residence at Tufts, working part time at the Medical Legal Partnership at Boston Medical Center.
