Courtney Lamie has worked at the intersection of policy and politics, with a focus on tech, for more than a decade.

Prior to joining the Crosscut team, Courtney founded and led the communications department at the Application Developers Alliance, a non-profit global membership organization dedicated to supporting app developers. At the Alliance, Courtney led national advocacy campaigns on patent reform and mobile app privacy and worked with the Alliance membership – from startups to major players in the app industry including Google, Intel, and Samsung – to create and promote app industry best practices and guidelines.

Before that, Courtney worked on the communications team of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, with a focus on digital, grassroots, and policy communication, and worked for her home district congressman and tech policy leader, Rick Boucher, from 2004 to 2010 as his Press Secretary and eventually as his Communications Director.
