The Office of Federal Relations has added a new member to the team. Brianna Fields is my new Assistant, replacing Maggie Mount who left our office in early June.
Bri will take over our office administrative duties, as well as provide support for the UW’s overall legislative program. Among other things, she will be responsible for scheduling appointments on Capitol Hill and for me when I travel back to campus, contributing to the Federal Relations report and blog, monitoring legislation and hearings, and submitting the University’s quarter lobbying reports.
Bri is a proud Husky, having graduated from the UW last spring with a degree in Political Science. During her senior year, she completed a 3-month internship at the US Department of Commerce working on legislative and public relations issues. She also was a Finance Intern for the Obama for America/Democratic National Committee in the fall of 2008. Earlier this spring, Bri moved to the DC area to start her career in the Nation’s Capitol. We are lucky to have found her and look forward to utilizing her talents to help advance our federal legislative priorities.
I hope you will join me in welcoming Bri to the UW community! Bri can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-624-1420.
