The ever-changing political and legislative landscape of DC presents threats to be mitigated and opportunities to be seized. I enjoy advancing strategies for clients to achieve both.

How Ryan is building a better working world 

“I bring new insights to clients fresh from Capitol Hill after a career working on the Senate Finance Committee. I have worked on all aspects of policy engagement, from idea generation and coalition building to bill introduction, passage and implementation. Success requires real-time advice but also patience, attention to detail and effective bipartisan teams starting with the best policy minds in DC at WCEY.”
