Prior to opening her own law office in 2008, Rebecca had been Senior Vice President, Senior Trust Officer at Union Trust Company since 1994.   Prior to that, she practiced law at Loughlin & Wade in Portsmouth, NH, where she concentrated her practice in estate planning, probate, and real estate.

Rebecca holds a B.S. degree in Business Administration from The Pennsylvania State University and a J.D. degree from the University of Maine School of Law.  She is admitted to the bar in Maine and New Hampshire.  She is a member of the Maine, New Hampshire, and American Bar Associations as well as the Hancock County Bar Association.  She is a graduate with honors of the National Graduate Trust School at Northwestern University and ABA Stonier Graduate School of Executive Bank Management at Georgetown University.  She is currently a member of the Advisory Board for the Certified Trust and Financial Advisor Program, the Certified Council of the Institute of Certified Bankers.

In addition, Rebecca has been an instructor in various estate planning investment topics for the American Bankers Association and at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, New Hampshire College, Acadia Senior College, Belfast Senior College, and Ellsworth and RSU 24 Adult Education.

Rebecca donates her time and expertise in the following ways:  as an Honorary Trustee of the Maine Coast Memorial Hospital; as a board member and member of the Executive Committee for the James Russell Wiggins Down East Family YMCA; on the Ellsworth Area Chamber of Commerce board; as a member of the Institute of Certified Bankers CTFA Certification Board; and on the editorial board of the American Bankers Association’s Trust Letter.

An Ellsworth native, Rebecca’s passions include gardening and golfing.  She might argue that between work and weather, there’s never quite enough time for either.
