Leadership Experience

I currently lead our law firm’s employee benefits practice group, focusing on legal advice for employers and associations regarding retirement plans, executive compensation, and Affordable Care Act compliance.  For the past several years I publish newsletters for clients on current events, regularly conduct webinars, and regularly contribute to the Montana Lawyer, a publication of the State Bar of Montana. I have been a Martindale Hubbell AV rated lawyer for several years and am recognized by Super Lawyers for Mountain States.  Crowley is a regional law firm with over 150 lawyers.

I am active in the State Bar of Montana, serving as Secretary for the BETTR Law Section for a few years and as Secretary for the Health Law Section for many years. I was privileged to be part of the original team that re-vitalized the Health Law Section back into existence.

I currently serve as a member of the Pacific Coast Area TE/GE Council, comprised of a small group of people who work closely with national IRS leaders and US Department of Labor leadership to mutually discuss current regulatory activities related to employee benefit laws.  I am a representative from Montana to the Pacific Coast TE/GE, serve as the Vice President for the Pacific Coast TE/GE, and serve as one Pacific Coast representative for the National TE/GE. I additionally participate in the American Bar Association sections for Tax Law and Health Law in a joint employee benefit interest group.

How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse

I am interested in giving back to my community, with a focus on young, motivated, professional women.  I am passionate about supporting young women leaders and developing strong women leaders for our future.
