She joined the Mackinac Center in October 2015. Immediately before joining the Center, she was the communications director at the Nevada Policy Research Institute in Las Vegas.

Lovell, who spent most of her life in Southern California, received a bachelor’s degree in Government from the University of Redlands and a master’s degree in Political Science from the University of Nebraska.
