We believe that Republican women deserve to speak up, not stand aside.
That we need to connect better, smarter.
That being engaged in American politics is mission critical.
BECAUSE WE CAN DO BETTER.
Republican Women for Progress (RWFP) is a grassroots policy organization created to: ensure the full spectrum of Republican women’s voices are represented in the media, develop and support the pipeline of Republican women who want to lead and run for office, and refocus the GOP on proper governance and policy.
From a shared vision, and a few glasses of wine, Republican Women for Hillary was born.
Between addressing the Democratic National Convention to having fun with mean tweets on Samantha Bee, working in battleground states and hosting networking events, we fought hard until November when America finally made its decision.
Ultimately, things didn’t turn out as we had hoped, but we realized that there was a need, more than ever, for our brand of modern, forward-thinking Republicanism. If the Party of Lincoln is to continue to exist, we must ditch antiquated social ideals and separatism, develop a space for progressive dialogue, and work towards creating constructive policies instead of pushing political agendas. Enter Republican Women for Progress.

In her previous life, Jennifer was the Director of Health Policy in the Labor, Immigration, and Employee Benefits Division at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce where she handled health care issues affecting employers and health sector members of the Chamber, in addition to researching and developing the Chamber’s overall policy on health care reform. An even longer time ago, she served on the U.S. Senate Committee on Business and Entrepreneurship under Olympia Snowe, had a brief stint on Scott Brown’s transition team, and worked in Altria’s legislative affairs office.
A 2010 graduate of The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, Jennifer received her B.A. in public interest policy, cum laude, from the University of Mary Washington in 2007.

In her day job, she serves as the Director of Financial Services at the American Action Forum (AAF), a center-right think tank that provides data-driven insight to today’s policy challenges where she manages the entirety of AAF’s activity in its financial services and housing finance policy portfolios.
In her afternoon job, she contributes to DC’s premier food and lifestyle blog, The Hungry Lobbyist, where she leverages her almost-refined palate and insatiable need to take pictures of food into a productive use of time. A lover of listicles, she once received national acclaim for her ranking of all the flavors of La Croix.
Previously she was a Presidential Management Fellow working at the Small Business Administration and later at the House Committee on Small Business.
