Tell us a little about yourself I'm a program assistant for the Campaign, and my main job is to administer the Campaign's internal database. I also help update the Huddle and send mass mailings. I've been with the Campaign since June 2013, graduated in 2011 from St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland, and currently live just outside of Washington, DC. My hobbies include swing dancing, reading, and making art.
