I am currently a legislative correspondent for Senator David Perdue (R-GA) and have been in the senator’s official office since January 2015. In this capacity, I cover agriculture, energy, natural resources, forestry, and environment issues.
Before this role, I served as Senator Perdue’s Metro Atlanta field representative and worked on Senator Perdue’s campaign as the deputy state field director. I also have experience in the United States House of Representatives, higher education government relations, and political fundraising.
