What excites me the most about my job:
I love solving problems for our members. I frequently hear from members about challenges they have due to various legislative and regulatory issues they're encountering. It's my job to help identify solutions, whether that's connecting them to someone who can help resolve their specific issue or providing a policy solution and navigating that process.
Outside the office, you'll probably find me:
Chauffeuring my kids around to their various extracurricular activities or just curling up with a good book.
