  • A member of the state bars of Texas and Michigan, she served as a policy advisor to law firms, committees, and legislative caucuses in both states.
  • She looks forward to working with Lieutenant Governor Gilchrist due to his work on criminal justice reform, closing health equity gaps, and expanding economic opportunities in Michigan communities.
