As a field organizer for Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, Anna Humphrey learned how to ask tough questions — and how to answer even tougher ones. She brings these same skills to West Wing Writers, where she helps visionary leaders match messages to moments.
Previously, Anna served at the Washington Speakers Bureau, where she managed a portfolio of speechmakers that included former heads of government, business luminaries, and award-winning journalists. She led the company’s efforts to market these speakers as thought leaders in their respective fields.
Before that, she managed outreach efforts at the U.S. Trade and Development Agency, amplifying the Agency’s success in linking U.S. companies to global infrastructure opportunities. Anna advised the Agency’s Director on messaging for speeches and Congressional hearings, developed budget requests and annual reports, and crafted communications strategies for high-profile, cross-agency initiatives.
Anna has written for the Chief Information Officer at the White House, facilitating decision-making on technology issues by senior leaders and other non-technical staff, as well as the Pentagon’s Chief Technology Officer.
Anna is a native of Lexington, Kentucky, and a cum laude graduate of the University of Dayton. She lives in New York City’s East Village.
