Please join Floom Energy Law PLLC in welcoming our newest Associate Attorney, Kaci Poor!
Kaci served for two years as an attorney advisor in the FERC Office of Administrative Law Judges. There, she advised on hearing and settlement proceedings involving the rates and practices of interstate natural gas pipelines and electric utilities.
Kaci is a graduate of the University of Florida Levin College of Law. While in law school, Kaci interned with the Department of Justice Environment and Natural Resources Division Appellate Section.
Prior to law school. Kaci worked in journalism and communications. She met her husband, a United States Coast Guard Officer and helicopter pilot, while writing a news article in Northern California. Kaci, her husband, and their dog have traveled to over 38 states!
At Floom Energy Law PLLC, Kaci is most looking forward to...working with and learning from John Paul. Not to date him too much (sorry, John Paul!), but he has decades of experience in natural gas and ratemaking. Working in the FERC Office of Administrative Law Judges provided me with a great foundational understanding of the energy, and in particular the Natural Gas Act, but I am excited to deepen my knowledge of the practice area under John Paul's tutelage.
Her proudest professional moment has been...assisting FERC Administrative Law Judge Stephanie L. Nagel as a law clerk in the Commission's second-ever virtual hearing in September 2020. The hearing involved the Commission's first full natural gas ratemaking proceeding to go to hearing in several years. Not only did I gain valuable behind-the scenes experience into how a hearing is conducted, but it also gave me an opportunity to interact face-to-face (virtually, at least) with several other practicing attorneys and experts in the field.
What has been your favorite US State you've visited? I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska. Although I have lived in several states since then, I will always consider the Pacific Northwest home. My parents now live on an island in Washington's Puget Sound and it is absolutely my favorite place to visit.
