In addition to being the firm's Executive Director, Kathy also works in the firm's Government Relations practice. She manages complex issues involving public affairs, government relations and strategic planning for business and energy clients, including mining companies, energy companies, manufacturers and developers, among others.

Among Kathy's achievements are the public affairs strategy and governmental relations for new power plants and mines, as well as lobbying for a multi-use project in the Grand Canyon that was the largest zoning case of its kind in Coconino County. Her work also included the public affairs program that supported a successful $60 million municipal award for public safety equipment.
