Gretchen has experience. The real kind. She spent over a decade in Washington where she focused on messaging and communicating major policy and political issues for key decision makers such as Members of Congress, House Leadership, and the Executive Office of the President, as well as running an economic and fiscally focused nonprofit. Gretchen brings a strategic and focused approach to communicating and messaging and is now advising political and issue campaigns throughout the country. She focuses on not only what to say, but how and where to say it. Her experience goes beyond traditional media into digital platforms. She is well known for her commentary for CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, USA Today and other authoritative outlets. She’s draws on her farm and ranch, Oklahoma upbringing for her plain-spoken approach and unmatched work ethic. Her first word was “cotton” and she is determined to have the last word as she advocates on behalf of rural America.
