As assistant attorney general, Salsbury also gained experience advising boards on compliance issues, reviewing employment agreements and personnel matters, and assisting organizations in navigating their relationships with their affiliated foundations. She brings with her years of expertise on federal and state laws governing higher education, ethical conflicts, intellectual property issues, personnel and employment issues, board compliance issues, and more.

Prior to serving as assistant attorney general, Salsbury served as an associate at the Baltimore-based law firm, Gallagher Evelius & Jones, LLP. In her initial role as a litigator, she assisted clients in complex business disputes in state and federal courts, and eventually transitioned into the real estate transactions group at the firm where she represented clients in multifaceted real estate transactions.

In 2018, she was the recipient of The Maryland Daily Record’s Leading Women award.
