Jennifer Arangio, former senior director of the White House National Security Council,, is joining D.C. lobbying firm Federal Advocates as vice president.

Arangio first started worked for the president during the 2016 campaign, serving as its director of women engagement. She then served on the presidential transition team and joined the administration as a senior director on the NSC staff. Her responsibilities included multilateral affairs, women’s economic empowerment and entrepreneurship and strategic communications.

Before working for Trump, Arangio was a principal at security and intelligence consulting firm Command Group. She also served as senior counsel for the House Committee on Homeland Security from 2006 to 2014.

Federal Advocates president Michael Esposito said that "pairing Jennifer's experience with my position on the RNC Chairman's Advisory Board, Vice President (and former Member of Congress) Chris Carney's advisory role at the DCCC, and our access into the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Hispanic Caucus, our reach into the D.C. political apparatus continues to be exceptionally strong."
