Government Relations

For Planned Parenthood Federation of America, I worked to ensure that the Affordable Care Act was implemented at the federal level in a way that ensured access to women's health care services from women's health care providers. I also worked with affiliates on how to do the same in state level implementation.

DC Councilmember David Catania

Deputy Director & Committee Counsel

For DC's legislative branch, I drafted DC's marriage equality law and carried out the strategy to pass it. My strategy prevented a referendum and helped win every legal challenge: twice at trial court, again on appeal, and when the U.S. Supreme Court denied certiori. I wrote and passed only medical marijuana law recognized by U.S. Justice Department.
