After earning my undergraduate degree from Princeton University (including a year in Paris), I attended the double-degree program offered by Columbia University Law School and the University of Paris I (Panthéon-Sorbonne). I graduated from Columbia with honors and was an editor of the Law Review, and I obtained my maîtrise from Paris I with mention bien (high honors).
Following law school, I worked for a decade as a corporate and securities attorney, first at Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen & Hamilton (in both New York and Paris) and then, following a move to Baltimore, at DLA Piper US LLP. I am a member of the New York and Maryland Bars and an inactive (“omise“) member of the Paris Bar.
Since 2011 I have combined my expertise in language and the law as a freelance French to English translator.
