I’m a skilled legislative professional with a passion for politics. Before joining the Winston Agency, I was Legislative Director for Massachusetts State Representative Michelle Ciccolo, helping her found and grow the Zero Waste Caucus into one of the largest in the Legislature.
Prior to my time up north, I worked for veteran U.S. Senator Jack Reed of Rhode Island as well as the Pride of South Florida himself, U.S. Congressman Ted Deutch. Before that, I was getting called Peter Parker repeatedly as a high school Spanish teacher with Teach For America, followed by a year abroad teaching English in Spain (there, they just called me “eh-spiderman”).
I hold two bachelor’s degrees from the University of Kansas in Political Science and Secondary Education, and for graduate school, I betrayed my Kansas roots and crossed the border to get my M.Ed. from the University of Missouri Saint Louis.
When I’m not glued to C-Span, playing kickball, or traveling, I’m most happy in my garden, surrounded by all the vegetables I planted way too close together.
