Proctor has spent her career handling international trade, import and export legal matters for companies throughout the United States. She is excited to be a part of efforts to support the greater Phoenix metro area in becoming a hub of trade and global commerce.

In addition to her legal practice, Proctor has served as General Counsel and Vice President of the Phoenix Chapter of the Organization of Women in International Trade.
