We’ve added another RHockstar to the RH Strategic DC office! We’re thrilled to introduce our newest Public Affairs Associate, Elizabeth Decker, who answers some questions about herself and her background.
Tell us about your PR background prior to joining RH Strategic.
Before joining RH Strategic, I was a legislative assistant to Congresswoman Dina Titus of Nevada in her DC office, where I handled a diverse portfolio of social domestic issues. I provided policy analysis and developed legislative initiatives within my issue areas, while communicating the Congresswoman’s work, policy positions, and legislative priorities to her constituents.
What about PR excites you the most (and why)?
Having spent most of the past nine years on Capitol Hill, I’m excited to look at policy from an outside perspective, develop and promote client positions, and establish clients as thought leaders in DC.
What does your morning routine look like?
I check my email for a quick sense of what to look out for each day, then I’m out for a run down the Mall or around Capitol Hill. I always sip a cup of coffee while listening to my favorite morning news podcasts, Up First and The Daily.
What is your dream vacation spot (and why)?
When picking a travel destination, I ask myself “is this somewhere I could or would go another time?” and if the answer is probably not, I’m on my way. Given the opportunity to travel anywhere just because, I would pick Antarctica. I’m drawn to its remoteness, the beauty of the islands and wildlife, and the adventure of traveling to one of the most untouched places in the world.
What was the last concert you attended?
The Capitol 4th of July concert; I go almost every year. It’s always fun to see older acts like the Beach Boys and Neil Diamond, and I love watching the fireworks from the Capitol steps while listening to the NSO perform the classics.
