As Assistant Director of the Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Wyoming, she oversaw environmental policy analysis and collaborative decision making work. She has held policy and communications positions as a contractor at the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy at the U.S. Department of Energy and at Rocky Mountain Institute.
