Elizabeth Fawcett leverages insights garnered from her years on Capitol Hill to direct and implement public affairs strategies for RH Strategic’s clients.
Elizabeth’s near decade of experience on Capitol Hill enables her to advise clients on relevant legislation, policy matters and congressional processes that would impact their business. Her extensive knowledge of policy development allows her to create comprehensive public affairs strategies in support of client priorities.
After graduating with a BA in International Affairs from The George Washington University, Elizabeth turned her attention to domestic issues such as education and security. She translated her experience drafting talking points, speeches and briefing materials for Members of Congress into crafting messaging and policy positions for RH’s technology and cybersecurity clients.
Samples of Elizabeth’s achievements:
- Developing and drafting the Recognizing Achievement in Classified School Employees Act (PL 116-13), which mandates establishment of the Recognizing Inspiring School Employees (RISE) Award Program.
- Managing a legislative portfolio of social domestic issues, including healthcare, immigration, education and food security, while serving as a legislative assistant for Congresswoman Dina Titus.
- Helping a major cybersecurity client improve its position in the marketplace by planning a one-day conference for federal customers where the client’s Vice President of Global Government Affairs delivered the welcome remarks.
- Leading content creation efforts for public affairs clients, resulting in successful congressional testimonies, strategic blog placements and published op-eds in major national outlets such as Politico.
I’m proudest of…
Providing immediate, actionable insight for clients looking to further their policy priorities and understand the ins and outs of Congress. I like my clients to think of me as an on-hand resource: a policy specialist who can break through the noise on Capitol Hill and get their message heard by key policymakers and influencers.
