Kristin Jackson Bio

By Technology Director

With a Bachelor’s in Political Science from Missouri State University and a Master’s  in Government from Georgetown University, Kristin Jackson has dedicated her career to working on behalf of all American taxpayers to make government work better.  The lens that she applies to each and every policy is one that she used while conducting oversight of State Department programs in Latin America: “How do I explain to my mom in Missouri why her tax dollars are spent on this program?”  When she found that too often the answer was not readily available, Kristin set about to right the ship.

Kristin served five years on the Hill, as Staff Director of the House Foreign Affairs Western Hemisphere Subcommittee, Senior Staff to a Congressman from Florida, and as Legislative Assistant to a Congressman from Indiana.  She has worked as an Associate Program Officer at the International Republican Institute, where she worked with a team to combat authoritarian regimes and promote democratic principles in Latin America.  Kristin was previously a Director at DCI Group where she led a team in the design and execution of public affairs campaigns utilizing partnerships, traditional media and social media platforms to influence public policy.
