Public Policy Advocacy Tools
When is the last time you had an advocacy tuneup? When is the last time you or your organization had an opportunity to hear directly from a White House and Congressional staffer about what works and what doesn’t work to change public policy. Are you feeling that some of your advoacy tools and techniques are a bit outdated? Would you want to learn the right “asks” you can make, end deadlock, and finally create positive action on the issues you care about?
Through my speaking, trainings, and book, Right to Petition, I provide how-to manuals for voters, advocates, students, activists, and anyone who wants to take action and change public policy in Washington, DC. I’ve put together more than a decade of public policy insider’s knowledge, understandable tools, and plain language explanations.
I’ve always enjoyed teaching and empowering people. Now my trainings and book help me reach more people. So come, learn, share, and grow!

For fourteen years, I served as a principal senior advisor, strategist, and confidant on The White House National Security Council and to Members of Congress on a wide variety of political matters and policy issues. I have extensive expertise in diverse topics ranging from national security and intelligence to immigration and congressional processes.
Now, I work with individuals and organizations who are eager to accelerate policy issues, increase advocacy efforts, and create changes in their organizations and communities. My passion is making government accessible to everyone. I focus on Congressional education, training, and consultations by providing a variety of customized keynotes, courses, seminars, workshops, and strategic guidance to public governments and private organizations.
