Prior to joining Loyola, Screen served as legislative correspondent and later as legislative assistant on the staff of former U.S. Senator John Breaux, working closely with the Department of Interior and the Department of Education. He also helped organize campaign rallies for Governor Kathleen Blanco during the 2003 campaign runoff.
