I’m Jennifer Ciarlo Pacholek and I came to Vermont in 1992 to attend UVM. I interned at the Chittenden County Public Defender’s Office and went on to Vermont Law School. Since 1999, I have worked at Diamond & Robinson, P.C. in Montpelier, VT in various capacities. Currently, I am an of counsel attorney practicing in Civil Litigation, Workers Compensation Law, Personal Injury Law, Social Security Disability Law, and Family Law. I live in Waterbury Center with my eight-year old daughter, Lila, as well as our dog, cat, & fish. I teach four winds nature education program for my daughter’s class each month and just completed my 200 hour yoga teacher certification. I served on the Board of Directors of the American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont for nine years and was an advisor to the Governor’s Commission on Women for two years under Governor Howard Dean. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, reading, traveling, biking, swimming, cross country skiing, practicing yoga, and seeing live music. I am happy to serve on the board of the Peace & Justice Center and to participate in a grassroots activist organization that allows me to use my skills to try to make this crazy world a better place for all people to live in.
