The list, which is in its third year, recognizes lobbyists, PAC managers and grassroots professionals who "showed significant 2022 success, took an innovative approach to their field, and demonstrated commitment to giving back to their community, as well as adherence to the highest ethical standards.

Using her experience and understanding of the policymaking process, she advises clients on how to engage with policymakers on Capitol Hill and within the Executive Branch to solve their challenges, as well as secure key opportunities to benefit their organizations.

He previously served as General Counsel for the Senate Health, Education, Labor, & Pensions Committee under Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN), where he provided counsel on the full committee's legislative drafting and regulatory oversight portfolio, particularly in the areas of intellectual property, competition and transparency in healthcare, drug scheduling, privacy, Health IT and cybersecurity, and other legal matters within the committee's jurisdiction.
