I am an attorney in the FTC’s Office of the General Counsel, where I work on a wide variety of advisory, rulemaking and litigation projects. I came to the FTC after working for a large law firm and clerking for a federal appeals court judge. When I decided to pursue a government service career, I researched many different agencies and soon realized that the FTC should be at the top of my list.
I was drawn to the FTC’s cutting-edge efforts to protect consumers on issues as diverse as data security, hospital mergers, and energy-use labeling. I’ve been thrilled with my decision. Through my work, I am constantly exposed to new industries, areas of law, and enforcement strategies. I give legal advice to senior leaders, attorneys, and support staff throughout the agency. I work with people who have decades of experience and those who are fresh out of school, but they all have several things in common: dedication to our mission, integrity, intellectual curiosity, and a sense of humor. It’s no surprise that the FTC is consistently rated one of the best places in government to work.
