I have been an administrative law judge with the Office of Administrative Hearings since September 2013. I was an employee of the Minnesota Department of Education from 1996 to 2013, where my work primarily concerned the enforcement of special education laws. I have a broad understanding of administrative law from my work at the Department of Education. Prior to my tenure at the Minnesota Department of Education, I was an attorney with the Minnesota Disability Law Center where I practiced exclusively in the area of special education.

I am not employed by a local education agency or a disability advocacy group, nor do I serve on the board of a local education agency or disability advocacy group.
