I am excited to contact you today as the new Pennsylvania State Director. As you may know, Jennifer Stefano, our former Pennsylvania State Director, has been promoted to a larger role within Americans for Prosperity.
We are all proud of Jennifer and happy to see her take on this new role. We know she’ll continue to be successful. I am honored to have the opportunity to follow in her footsteps.
Here’s a little about me – At the age of eight, I decided I wanted to be the first female U.S. Senator from my home state of Virginia. The notion wasn’t too lofty though; I coveted the job because I assumed it didn’t start until 10 a.m. Today, like all you parents out there, I am up way before 10 a.m. to begin my day as a mom to three spirited children.
After earning a degree in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia, I moved to Washington, DC, and spent some time on Capitol Hill as a congressional staffer. For the past 10 years, I have worked as a project manager for CMA, a consulting firm in Kansas City, where I helped food-system clients design and successfully execute stakeholder engagement, communication and outreach programs. Before joining CMA, I served for six years as public affairs director for the North Carolina Pork Council (NCPC).
Some might say that my experience working in Washington, DC and working in pork makes me uniquely qualified for my new role. More importantly, I am proud to work along-side the grassroots activists and other stakeholders committed to the values that have guided Pennsylvania since its founding; “Virtue, Liberty, Independence.” The next generation is counting on each of us.
I look forward to meeting all of you and working with you to advance economic freedom (and cutting taxes and pork barrel political spending) here in our Commonwealth.
In the meantime, if you have not already made plans, we invite you to join AFP-PA, and grassroots activists from across the country, in Dallas on August 29-30 for the Defending the American Dream Summit. Register here: http://www.defendingthedream.com/register/
