Lindsey Owen, born and raised in Vermont, has been committed to helping people with disabilities since she was a high school student and volunteering to help students with disabilities learn how to swim. From that time she has followed her passion across the country and back to Vermont, working as an assistant teacher in a classroom serving children with autism and then as a behavior interventionist before attending law school. Attorney Owen graduated cum laude from Vermont Law School in May of 2013 and has been employed by Disability Rights Vermont even before graduation, assisting Vermonters with disabilities on an advocacy level. Once she obtained her Vermont law license in November 2013 she has been a staff attorney for Disability Rights Vermont, representing individuals in disputes before the Vermont Human Rights Commission, and most recently focusing her work on representing victims with disabilities through the criminal prosecution of their offenders to ensure their victims’ rights are recognized and enforced. Attorney Owen is currently the Acting Executive Director of Disability Rights Vermont and has been an Adjunct Professor at VLS since January 2020.
