Natalie Farr Harrison

Senior Vice President | Government Relations
Washington, D.C. |

Natalie’s 15-year career in the House, Senate and executive branch makes her an ideal advocate who looks at a given issue from multiple perspectives, giving clients a 360-degree view of how to achieve a goal.

Since joining Avoq, Natalie spent most of her time developing strategies to advance client interests across the House, Senate and White House, with a particular focus on GOP Senate offices. She has managed numerous policy campaigns on Capitol Hill, including issues ranging from advancing the use of clean energy derived from animal waste, to managing a coalition advancing a national standard regarding compensation for college athletes’ name, image and likeness.

Throughout the pandemic, she advised clients on how to successfully engage Republicans on vital issues of the day such as broadband access for remote learning, and how AI plays an important role in predictive models related to COVID-19 cases, vaccinations and the spread of the illness. Natalie has prepared CEOs and high-level executives to achieve their goals on Capitol Hill and having worked as the Chief of Staff for a former Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, she frequently briefs clients on the political outlook in the Senate.

Prior to Avoq, Natalie worked for Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado for eight years, including as his Chief of Staff in both the House and the Senate. Before becoming his Chief, she worked on Gardner’s energy and telecommunications portfolios as his House Legislative Director. Prior to that, Natalie worked for the House Republican Study Committee, providing policy analysis on legislative issues. She has also worked on Congressional Affairs at the Department of Labor where she handled international visa issues, for former Rep. John Shadegg of Arizona, and for former Sen. Jon Kyl of Arizona.

Natalie is a graduate of the College of William and Mary, and has her Master’s in Public Policy from George Mason University. She grew up in a Foreign Service family — moving every few years — but now calls the DC area her home. She and her family live in Alexandria, VA.
