Development and External Affairs Coordinator
Tizzy’s parents believed that all lessons in life could be learned through sports and politics. After failing to become a world class gymnast by the age of eight, Tizzy began her pursuit of the world’s most noble profession: politics.
Tizzy currently serves as the Development and External Affairs Coordinator for Third Way’s Development and External Affairs team. She previously worked as a Communications Coordinator for National Geographic Channel where she did everything from finding corgis for Good Morning America segments to arranging international press trips. Tizzy also spent time interning all over DC, including stints at NPR, the US Senate, and two semesters as Third Way’s communications intern.
Tizzy attended college and graduate school down the street from Third Way at George Washington University, earning a BA/MA in American Studies. She focused much of her graduate school experience taking classes in the women’s studies department, studying intersectional domestic policy. As a former member of the intern nation, she is passionate about intern rights and did extensive research on the feasibility of payment for all Capitol Hill interns. With the extra time she had between classes and internships, Tizzy spent her time volunteering for the American Association of University Women, lobbying on Capitol Hill on behalf of the organization. After a brief excursion to the world outside of politics following school, Tizzy decided it was time to return to making a real difference.
Tizzy spends her time outside of work going to as many spin and barre classes as her schedule will allow and searching for the best taco truck in the District.
