Careers in Public Policy
California Government Relations
MPP, Pepperdine University, 1999
BA, Political Science,
University of California, Davis, 1993
My professional and personal horizons were greatly expanded when I made the leap of faith and joined the inaugural class of the Pepperdine School of Public Policy. I received a world-class education, made great friends, and developed a network which has enabled my success post-graduation. I chose the economics specialization in order to add a strong quantitative background to complement my experience in government and politics.
As the director of California government relations for one of the world's largest energy companies, I find myself utilizing, on a daily basis, the tools provided me by the public policy faculty - whether it be statistics, labor economics, or organizational behavior. I would not be where I am today without Pepperdine and the School of Public Policy.
