Jennifer N. Higgins
Jenn Higgins, Partner at Chamber Hill Strategies, has a reputation in Washington for being an expert on health policy who gets things done. Jenn has spent the past fifteen years using that tenacity and policy knowledge to help corporate executives navigate a constantly changing legislative and regulatory landscape.
During her tenure in Washington, Jenn has represented a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies before Congress and the Administration, serving as Principal and Partner with two prominent lobbying firms, as well as advising senior agency officials at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Jenn has consistently cultivated her relationships with key Republican members within the House Ways and Means Committee and Senate Finance Committee, due to their primary jurisdiction on health care and tax issues. Her work with House Republican leadership has also facilitated direct access for clients to key decision makers in the health care, tax, and immigration space.
Jenn also spent four years capitalizing on her health policy expertise to advise Wall Street investors and hospital chief executives. As Senior Associate with the Marwood Group, a healthcare and financial services firm based in New York, her primary responsibility was to advise clients on the legislative and regulatory risks to facility-based health care companies. Her previous experience includes debriefing hospital chief executives on the intricacies of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 as an analyst with the Advisory Board Company.
Jenn is engaged in a variety of political activities here in Washington, particularly ongoing efforts by the Republican campaign committees to recruit and elect more Republican women to Congress. Since 2016, she has served as Board Chair for Right NOW Women PAC, a political action committee dedicated to supporting female Republican candidates nationwide, while also advising several other political organizations on candidate recruitment. When she is not lobbying or campaigning, Jenn serves as a guest lecturer at Georgetown University’s Government Affairs Institute and a regular panelist on PBS’s To the Contrary, a weekly discussion of news and national affairs with a panel of nationally known women.
Jenn attended Davidson College where she received a B.A. in Medical Economics and Ethics. She also holds a Certificate in Legislative Studies from Georgetown University’s Government Affairs Institute.
