A former senior staffer on Capitol Hill and manager of a national association’s federal government relations program, Jodie has firsthand experience on both sides of the government advocacy table.

Jodie is highly skilled in strategic planning and crafting smart tactics that help clients meet their public policy goals while fostering relationships with members of Congress and their staff. She creates government relations strategies rooted in an in-depth understanding of federal government processes and priorities. She is adept at working the federal appropriations and authorization processes to advance client policy and funding goals, and she helps clients build coalitions to amplify their message.

Jodie also works behind the scenes to align client public policy goals with organization priorities and trains clients on how to be effective advocates at the local, state, and federal levels.
