I have more than ten years of professional experience, ranging from nonprofits to government to the private sector. I hold graduate degrees in law and business. I am a licensed attorney in the states of Washington and Oregon. Until the fall of 2016, I ran a boutique law practice focused on business and intellectual property law and taught business law at Seattle University. Currently, I am a doctoral student at Boise State University, studying public policy. I am also the Assistant Director of the Energy Policy Institute. Starting in the fall of 2017, I will also be teaching business law for Boise State's College of Business and Economics as an adjunct professor.
