She served in the Clinton Administration and as Chief of Staff to Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Ted Kennedy. She currently serves as Director of the Washington Office and Assistant to the President for the United Auto Workers.

"I think of Atlas as our roadmap for winning: it provides us with a high quality set of strategic products and services that allows us to succeed at the ballot box and on Capitol Hill."

"Atlas provides reliable, comprehensive data that allows us to plan efficiently and make informed strategic decisions that help us elect candidates up and down the ticket who support working families."
