I have consulted for companies and non-profits on privacy policies, P3P, usable privacy and security, and technology policy. I have also served as an expert witness in patent litigation and in privacy cases, and in cases challenging the constitutionality of Internet harmful-to-minors laws, including the ACLU's successful challenge to the 1998 Children's Online Protection Act. I currently do expert witness consulting through Harbor Labs.
I spend most of my free time with my husband (Chuck), son (Shane), and daughters (Maya and Nina). I walk to work, practice yoga, take lots of photos, and design and create quilts. I also serve as an elected election judge, SciTech PTO President, and Dynamoms women's soccer commissioner.
