My first project is about a woman named Andrea McWilliams. I find it very interesting because this woman is a breast cancer survivor. I wish there were more women like Andrea McWilliams. From the articles that I’ve read, Andrea McWilliams is a lobbyist and political fundraiser as well as a skilled strategist. She brings her unique expertise to every media which includes FOX News, the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, USA Today, CNN, BBC, and NPR. She now resides with her husband, Dean, and three sons in a historical home steps from the Texas Capitol. As a Chief of Staff, Andrea McWilliams went on to hone her own private sector grassroots skills at an iconic public relations company called Public Strategies, Inc. Her current position is a co-founder of McWilliams, which is a full-service firm of governmental affairs consultants. She worked as a legislative aide for former Texas Senator Jim Turner which is prior to his service to the US Congress.She was on the Austin American Statemen Fortune 500 list for years 2005, 2006, and 2007. Andrea has represented many fundraisers like the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and KillCancer which are nonprofit groups who are very committed to cancer prevention. She was an honorary chair for the Mamma Jamma which she was involved in to raise millions of dollars for thousands of Central Texans who were coping with breast cancer. She is a proud recipient of the Austin Business Journal’s “Profiles in Power“, Texas Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s “2016 Texas Businesswoman Of The Year Finalist”, Girl Scout of Central Texas’s “Women of Distinction”, and “Austin Under 40” awards. Andrea McWilliams has been involved in many philanthropies like Texas Lyceum, Mexi-Arte Museum, Arthouse, Rise Across Texas Challenge, HeartGift, the Elizabeth Ann Seton Hospital, Austin Children in Crisis, Pioneer Farms, and the Waterloo President’s Counsel.
