AJ is a strategic government relations professional who focuses on state policy objectives. From Washington state’s capital, AJ helps drive results for clients in government relations, lobbying, strategic communications, and public policy. AJ works with a number of Strategies 360’s clients in both the public and private sectors.
Before joining S360, AJ worked on two successful federal campaigns. After completing an internship with Denny Heck’s campaign, where she helped mobilize grassroots efforts in Washington’s new 10th Congressional District, AJ joined President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign. Assigned to a region on Colorado’s Western Slope, AJ experienced the intensity of national politics in a battleground state firsthand. Working closely with Pitkin County Democrats, AJ was the first field organizer to ever be assigned to Aspen, where she helped register voters and turn out the vote. Pitkin County voted 68 percent in favor of President Obama, and was one of the top five counties to help him win Colorado.
An avid reader, AJ also enjoys spending her off hours with family and taking her two golden retrievers for long runs. An athlete at heart, AJ played collegiate soccer and lacrosse.
A Seattle native, AJ received her B.A. in political science, with minors in women’s studies and philosophy, from Central Washington University.
