Charity is a lawyer, a mother, a volunteer, and a proud Vermonter.

Growing up in southern Vermont, Charity experienced firsthand the challenges Vermont’s small businesses face. Charity is the daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter of small-town Vermont grocers and spent her early years stocking shelves and working the cash register at her family’s store.

She is a graduate of Burr & Burton Academy in Manchester, the University of Vermont, and Boston College Law School. Before entering law school, Charity was a policy analyst at the Vermont Governor’s Office.

In 2005, Charity’s legal career began as an associate at Downs Rachlin Martin in Burlington and later at Orrick in New York City. Charity was hired as an Assistant Attorney General in the Public Protection Division by former Attorney General Bill Sorrell in 2014. She has served as Chief of Staff under Attorney General T.J. Donovan since 2018.

Charity is a dedicated community volunteer, a Justice of the Peace, and chair of the board of her town library. In addition, she serves on the boards of First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington and Burr & Burton Academy. Drawing on her own experience as a mother, in 2018, Charity helped found the Junior League of Champlain Valley’s Diaper Bank, which has distributed over a million diapers statewide to families in need.

Charity lives in Williston. In 2021, she completed hiking the 272-mile Long Trail.
