I help clients develop strategies for complex issues that affect their business growth and success. The solution to a complicated problem may involve a legal approach, a change in law, a grass roots initiative, an aggressive communication strategy, creation of a coalition, or a combination of all of the above. I work with all levels of government and across all industries to accomplish the goal. As president of our consulting group, Devine Strategies, I have established a team approach that draws on all of the resources of the firm to create collaborative, multi-faceted solutions. I am a registered lobbyist in New Hampshire.
 
Clients have benefited from my expertise in mergers & acquisitions, utility management, deregulation, and rate cases, public policy tax issues, health care provider public policy, national consumer product organizations, and efforts to defeat onerous initiatives. I also have handled contracting issues for clients with the state.
 
I have spent the last 25 years in volunteer leadership roles supporting state and community organizations in New Hampshire. I travel when time allows.
