What originally brought you to Washington?
I am a DC Native--so I feel like I grew up with a front seat to politics via field trips to Capital Hill and museums from elementary thru high school. My home life was greatly influenced because there were frequent discussions about politics and the newspaper was SUPER important. I have seen DC go through many changes through the years, both good and bad. Many of these issues have influenced my decision about Corporate Social Responsibility
