We make it happen
At Clover Group LLC, I provide the strategic insight and leadership to assist you navigate and advance your governmental and business priorities.
I have had the privilege in working Illinois’ executive branch under four Governors’ administrations and have developed extensive experience documented by being appointed Deputy Director in Illinois Office of State Comptroller Dan Hynes. Throughout my tenure I have witnessed good government work but not without its imperfections. State government has an ever-increasing constituent mandate of being more interactive and responsive. I intend to bridge that divide and to bring access and influence to a wider net of entities and within achievable means.
I was then appointed as Deputy Director at the Illinois Department of Transportation where I oversaw the administration of the Federal Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program. I saw first-hand, the need for continued improvements and rigorous compliance of federal and state transportation mandates to ensure Prime contractors continue to lead the way in assisting DBE’s and small-businesses learn, navigate and participate on Illinois transportation and transit projects.

Prior to joining State government, I was the Chicago Public Schools’ Communications Specialist for Office of Language and Cultural Education’s Dual, World, ESL and Transitional Bilingual Education. Through earned media, the OLCE highlighted the advances and cutting-edge education opportunities in the CPS system as we rolled out the City of Chicago’s Mayor's World/Dual language standards and metrics as well as coordinating CPS’ plethora of education and multi-cultural programs and events.
