Staff Assistant, Federal Government Affairs
September 2010 — Present
I am a staff assistant for the federal government affairs office of BNSF Railway. As a staff assistant I focus on political action committee outreach, executive scheduling, and analyzing legislative and regulatory affairs for a major Class I railroad company. I provide guidance for the executive staff and work on various projects to maximize and strengthen lobbying efforts on behalf of the legislative team. In addition, I speak regularly with members of the House and Senate as well as key regulatory stakeholders from the FRA, STB, and the DOT.
