Biography

I am a proud Colorado Springs native, and although family took me away, I came back as a young adult because I have always identified this place as my home.

After finishing college in Virginia, my career started in the Colorado Governor’s Office of State Planning and Budgeting as a budget analyst and strategic plan lead for the state. I returned to Colorado Springs to serve as the Executive Director of the First Tee of Pikes Peak. In that role, I collaborated with several youth development organizations to improve youth access to various activities throughout the City. During that time, I also served on the board of the SE YMCA, as well as championed a revamp of the games area in Acacia Park.

After my time with First Tee, I returned to public sector work as the assistant elections manager for El Paso County. I then tackled the complex policy issue of marijuana as a policy analyst for the City of Colorado Springs. While at the City, I also served as the Mayor’s Special Assistant, supporting the City’s branding efforts as well as acting as military liaison.

I am currently the Secure the Vote Program Director at the National Cybersecurity Center, where I work on issues of voting accessibility and security, as well as state- and nationwide cyber education. I also serve on the Pikes Peak United Way Public Policy Council.
