She is experienced with different types of project technologies, such as commercial, utility-scale, residential-scale photovoltaic systems and community solar projects.
The pair were among eight attorneys whose promotions were announced Thursday.
Other attorneys promoted to of counsel are Matthew E. Kelley in the litigation group in Washington, Michael S. Myers in the litigation group in Phoenix and Los Angeles, Chittam U. Thakore in the intellectual property group in Atlanta and Brittany M. Wilson in the litigation group in Philadelphia.
