WHY AJ BELONGS IN THE ROOM
She brings a diverse experience to ROKK.

From the Hill, she developed strong interpersonal skills and social media research, while her time at the Department of Treasury expanded her knowledge on the economy and trade and how to create a concise message to the American public. With her experience in digital fundraising, she was able to work with clients and collaborate with her team members in producing a clear and compelling message for donors.
She is a master of managing social media accounts.
At GW, she created graphics and wrote social media posts and public statements for the GW Bipartisan Women’s Supper Club. From there, she began to explore the dynamics of public affairs and social media management during her internships in college. After graduating GW, she worked for a digital fundraising and public affairs firm, where she worked on fundraising and messaging for three members of Congress. She was eventually given the responsibility of managing a member of Congress’ campaign Facebook and Twitter accounts and took part in highlighting an accomplishment for one of his constituents.
