Regina LaBelle, Principal
Working at the intersection of politics and policy, I develop public affairs strategies for nonprofit organizations and public sector agencies that seek to drive societal change.
I am a trained attorney and senior executive with experience at the state, local, and national levels of government. As a political appointee in the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) in the Obama Administration, I co-authored and helped to implement the Administration's plan to address the opioid epidemic. As the chief policy advisor to the Director and then as Chief of Staff, I represented ONDCP before Congress, at national conferences, and with the media.
Skilled at public speaking, writing, and strategy development, my previous work as legal counsel to the Mayor of Seattle as well as in the Federal Government provide a unique perspective on today's public policy challenges, particularly the opioid epidemic. A graduate of Georgetown University Law Center in Washington, DC and magna cum laude graduate of Boston College, I can work with you to devise strategies that effectively drive policy change on pressing public issues.
