A lobbyist and political strategist with nearly 20 years of experience, Tylynn has a distinguished career that ranges from political campaigns to strategic grassroots advocacy. She was featured in Fortune magazine as part of a new breed of in-state grass-roots lobbyists. Tylynn has the unique ability to manage many moving pieces in order to achieve federal legislative victories.
As Vice President of M & R Strategic Services from 2001 to 2004, Tylynn specialized in coalition building, field advocacy campaigns and media strategy.
Before joining Strategies 360, Tylynn served as Deputy State Auditor of Montana, where she developed legislative strategy and spearheaded the passage of 21 pieces of key legislation. She helped pass landmark health care insurance legislation for the state, and managed a staff of 70 employees.
At Strategies 360, Tylynn heads the D.C. office, providing clients with the cutting-edge, comprehensive and coordinated services necessary to fight and win in today’s cutthroat marketplace of ideas.
Tylynn has served in a variety of political positions — on the campaigns of U.S. Senator Max Baucus of Montana, Governor Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Governor Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas, U.S. Senator Tom Daschle of South Dakota and U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska.
Well into young-adulthood, first in South Dakota and later in Arizona, Tylynn trained, rode — and, yes, broke — Arabian show horses. So, managing campaigns and negotiating cumbersome political issues just seemed like the next logical career move.
A native of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Tylynn earned her BA in political science from Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, Arizona.
