Legislation & Public Speaking

Nadine worked as an advocate to help pass legislation in support of teenage victims of dating violence, which began her passion for lobbying.

She has been a speaker for the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) and many other state & local law enforcement agencies.  Nadine made regular appearances in national and local media to bring public awareness to the lifesaving technology of Ignition Interlock Devices during her term as President of the National Association of Ignition Interlock Providers.

Nadine was also a regular participant in the Health & Human Services (HHS) committee dubbed the “American Health Information Community,” which made Electronic Health Records adoption its top priority.
