Rachel Pearson draws on her extensive experience of elective politics to provide corporations, associations, and non-profit organizations with strategic planning and counsel. Pearson’s multifaceted work in politics and policy is informed by a deep understanding of how Washington works – on the Hill and in the diplomatic and business communities.
She founded Pearson & Associates in 1996 and has tremendous experience in numerous Senate campaigns and three Presidential elections. Her success has allowed her to form deep and extensive relationships with Members of both houses of Congress. Committed to reaching across the aisle, Pearson often convenes bipartisan congressional staff in an effort to foster relationships that will result in legislative solutions.
Pearson has served as an advisor to several governments in Africa with a focus on strengthening bi-lateral relationships and fostering U.S. investment in Africa.
In 2013, Rachel co-founded Principal to Principal, a forum which connects with Members of Congress, diplomats, and business leaders for intimate dinners several times a year.
In October of 2018, Rachel launched the Capitol Conversation & Performing Arts Series, a newly formed program designed to expose 535 Members of Congress to America’s fine arts virtuosos and promote a keener understanding of how music develops the American mind.
A month later, in the wake of the 2018 election, she launched Engage: Bringing Women Together to Find Solutions, a bipartisan women’s initiative that focuses on women’s economic security.
Rachel serves on the Boards of Refugees International, the 150PAC, and the French-American Cultural Foundation. She also serves on the Advisory Board of The New School Drama Department.
An Ohio native, Rachel is a collector of works on paper and an avid supporter of the arts.
