Day to Day

There is no typical day. There are so many external forces that one can plan to do something for most of the day and end up having to put those projects on hold while you deal with the latest crisis or the needs of a member of either the Legislature or your association.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

Most jobs benefit from multiple perspectives. Having worked in political campaigns and in both State Legislative and Congressional offices helped me prepare for this career.
