Hebrank and Jenkins both come to Carlton Fields from consulting firm Wilson & Associates. They will work as senior government consultants.
“Kari and Scott both have sterling reputations for client advocacy,” said Carlton Fields shareholder Nancy G. Linnan, who chairs the firm’s Government Law and Consulting practice. “Their extensive regulatory and lobbying experience is a tremendous asset to our team.”
Hebrank is an alumna of Florida State University with more than 25 years of legislative and regulatory experience. She specializes in housing, building materials, building codes, construction, sustainability, mitigation, energy, mining, infrastructure, and utilities issues.
Her resume includes a stint as the vice president of government relations for the Florida Building Material Association and, before that, as governmental liaison for the Florida Association of Counties.
Jenkins is an alumnus of Clemson University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree, and Florida State University, where he earned his master’s degree.
He has 20 years of experience in government relations. His past work includes serving as a lobbyist for a large bank, which required him to keep tabs on the legislatures of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
