Several of my articles have been published in the Wyoming Law Review, and the Newsletter of The Association of Paroling Authorities International. I have also presented on issues in parole and incarceration at numerous conferences throughout Wyoming including the Wyoming State Bar Annual Conference and for The Wyoming Trial Lawyer's Association.

Other Activities

After graduation from law school in 1998, I began my career in the criminal justice field as a public defender and then prosecutor in Carbon County, Wyoming. Following that I worked at the Wyoming Attorney General's office, engaging in appellate prosecution in state and federal courts, in addition to serving as the legal representative for the Wyoming Department of Corrections. I then spent 10 years as the Deputy and Executive Director of the Wyoming Board of Parole. I also served on the Correctional Industry Advisory Board (CIAB), having been appointed to the CIAB by the Governor in 2014. I am an active member of the Association of Paroling Authorities International (APAI), having served as Secretary for 2 terms and I continue to contribute research articles to the APAI quarterly newsletter.
