I grew up in Peachtree City, GA. I attended the University of Georgia beginning in 2004, and graduated with a degree in Political Science and Speech Communication in December of 2008. During my time at UGA, I served as the Director of the Freshman Forum Program, and attended the inaugural Washington Semester Program in the Spring of 2008, where I interned for former US Congressman John Linder (GA-7). Following graduation, I served as the Program Assistant for the Washington Semester Program, and interned in the US Senate. I moved directly from the Senate into the government relations firm, Quinn Gillespie and Associates, where I worked with various Fortune 500 financial services and insurance clients, supporting the management of the firm. In 2011, I was named the Executive Director of Prime Advocacy, a D.C.-based government relations firm. After 3 years at Prime Advocacy, I joined Hart Health Strategies as the Vice President of Government Relations.

I was born in the Middle East, grew up on the West Coast, educated in the South (go Dawgs!) and currently live in New England. The confluence of the places I’ve come from and people I’ve met have shaped my ideas about politics and my love for building relationships.

I studied Political Science and History at the University of Georgia. While a student, and since, I’ve worked with local, state, and federal government offices and campaigns.

While interning for Congressman Hank Johnson, I attended many meetings of the House Armed Services Committee. That, combined with having Dr. Loch Johnson as my mentor, made me especially interested in foreign policy and defense issues. This has informed my career path since participating in the Washington Semester Program.
