I worked for the State of Maryland as a budget and finance expert for almost 20 years. I began as a bill drafter and budget analyst for the Maryland General Assembly. From there, I became the Budget Director for the Department of Natural Resources, at the time a $500 million agency, and now I am the Director of Business and Finance for the Department of Physics at the University of Maryland, College Park. Over the course of my career as a public servant, I’ve drafted legislation, studied and implemented environmental, fiscal, education and smart growth policy, and ran complex government programs.
