O’Riley is director of strategic planning for the Michigan Department of State, and serves as a senior advisor to the Secretary of State and the department’s chief of staff. Previously, she served as founder and president of O’Riley Consulting, which provides tax related services, marketing strategies and government relations counsel to businesses and local and state government entities.
