Prior to her legal career, she worked professionally in the marketing, broadcast and events industries. Naz began her career at one of the most recognized alternative rock stations in the country, KXRK X-96. She then accepted a position as the Director of Marketing and Special Events at Park City’s Historic Egyptian Theatre—the crown-jewel of Park City—and the most recognized venue at the annual Sundance Film Festival. Naz later joined one of the largest Utah based advertising agencies, The Summit Group, as a Media Buyer where she used her analytic, reasoning and strategic marketing skills in 18+ markets for clients such as Subway Restaurants and T-Mobile.

Naz's previous experiences have given her skills to identify stakeholders and address their differing needs and she is excited about any future opportunities that await her. Naz spends her free time with family and friends.
