Headshot-16I am an environmental scientist who recently returned to Seattle after spending over three years in Washington DC transitioning to a career in policy. After serving as a science and technology policy advisor to a Member of Congress and a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, I am back in Seattle seeking to advance my career in public service.

My background is in environmental science with experience in academia, industry, and the executive and legislative branches of the federal government. I have strong analytical and written and oral communication skills. I excel at distilling complex topics into concise summaries and translating technical information into accessible, audience-appropriate formats. I’m a creative thinker, a coalition builder, and a pragmatist with a passion for using science to improve people’s lives.
