Upon completing her studies, she worked in labor advocacy and communications at 617MediaGroup before serving as the campaign manager for Finegold’s 2022 re-election campaign.
Olivia Retschle, who also worked of the senator’s re-election campaign as field director, joins as legislative aide. She graduated from North Carolina State University earlier in 2022 with a degree in Political Science.
Rounding out the staff is Justin Curtis, who has served as Finegold’s chief of staff since February of 2022 and previously worked as legislative director. Before joining the office, Curtis worked as communications director in 2018 on Dan Koh’s congressional campaign in the 3rd Congressional District.
