Bryan, originally from Tennessee, attended Austin Peay in Nashville.  After earning a B.S. in Corporate Communications in 2008, he moved to Minnesota to attend the University of St. Thomas where he graduated in 2011 with a law degree and a master's in public policy.  He joined the Minnesota Attorney General's Office in December 2011 where he spent three years representing the state agencies that license and regulate healthcare professionals.  His primary clients were the Minnesota Boards of Pharmacy, Nursing, and Physical Therapy.  He litigated a number of administrative cases, negotiated settlements, and advised agencies on day-to-day operations and legal compliance.  He also prosecuted multiple consumer fraud cases.

 

Bryan has been with Saint Paul Public Schools since January 2015 where he serves as an Assistant General Counsel.  In this role, he advises district administrators on a number of issues related to compliance, employee investigations and discipline, and policy development.  He also drafts settlement agreements to resolve employee disputes, review data sharing/privacy agreements, and liability waivers.  In addition, he teaches in the writing and representation program at Mitchell Hamline and will begin teaching in the University of St. Thomas School of Law mentor program this fall.

 

Bryan lives in St. Paul and in his free time he enjoy sports, working out, and generally staying active.  In the near future, he would like to become more involved in government policy development on a state and local level, with aspirations to work on the national level.
