Teresa Stepic
Vice President of Client Relations with DDC Public Affairs

 Teresa Stepic is a Vice President of Client Relations with DDC Public Affairs, the largest full service, vertically integrated public affairs firm in North America at 15th & H in the district.  In this role, Teresa supports and manages client advocacy campaigns at the international, federal, state, and local level.  Leading large engagements for clients in the defense and transportation industry, and many others, Teresa provides strategic counsel and oversees execution of day-to-day program operations.  Over the past four and a half years, she has helped some of the firmís largest clients expand their engagement programs from domestic to international levels, establishing localized campaigns and executing political events to drive their legislative and regulatory objectives Ė particularly in Canada, Europe, and most extensively, Australia.
 
After moving to DC five years ago, Teresa has relied on networking groups, including WGR, to build relationships and partnerships in the DC market.  WGR has created a collaborative environment to foster female leaders in the government relations industry, and being part of that positions its members for career success both inside and outside of Washington, of which Teresa is proud to be part of.  The partnership and involvement with female congressional leaders is critical for commissioning our younger generations to join politics, and WGR plays a foundational role in this.  As a new member to the marketing team for the WGR Spring Reception, Teresa looks forward to getting more involved in this event, working with the talented women involved in WGR, and continuing to build new relationships throughout the DC area to support long-term growth of WGR for years to come.
