About Me

I have a background in law and finance. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a Masters in Finance I took a job in the then Governor of Arizona’s Office of Strategic Planning and Budgeting. Within the first year of my employment I became an appointed employee at just 27 years old. I then became the Deputy Director of the Arizona Department of Fire, Building and Life Safety. After the Governor became the Secretary of Homeland Security in President Obama’s Cabinet I began practicing law in Wisconsin. Then in 2011 I moved to La Jolla, CA to pursue my passion in Social Media. I focus on the Ethical Use of Social Media and how to expand your law practices brand, expertise, revenue and recognition via the use of Social Media.
