I was appointed to fill a mid-term City Council vacancy in November of 2018. Professionally, my background is in government relations, campaigns & fundraising, and association management. My day-job as the Director of Government Affairs for the law firm of Holland & Hart, LLP includes overseeing the firm’s government affairs programs in 8 western states. I’m a graduate of Westminster College in Honors and History. I currently serve as the Co-Chair of the Utah Business Coalition and I just concluded two-terms on the Westminster College Alumni Board including serving as Chairwoman of the Board. I currently serve as the precinct chair, county delegate, and state delegate for my neighborhood. My husband, Michael O’Connor, is a teacher at Viewmont High School. In my free time, I’m most likely to be found outdoors as an avid mountain biker, skier, and hiker. As a family, we enjoy camping trips around Utah and the west.
