Emma Thomas joins Feldman Strategies as Director
WASHINGTON – Feldman Strategies, a prominent boutique progressive communications firm, is expanding its senior leadership team as it continues to grow its client roster and looks to offer additional communications capabilities.
The firm announced on Monday, January 10, 2022, that Emma Thomas has joined as Director. Emma, who is a seasoned communications strategist with deep subject matter expertise in health care policy, will apply her expertise in media relations, campaign organizing, and public affairs to elevate Feldman Strategies’ clients’ profiles in the media.
Emma joins Feldman Strategies with a keen understanding and passion for the intersection between the media, public policy, and communications, having most recently co-led BerlinRosen’s reproductive health, rights, and justice portfolio and voting rights work.
As Account Director at BerlinRosen, Emma secured thought leadership opportunities for statewide political leaders and led multi-organizational coalitions in the paid leave and reproductive rights spaces. She worked on ongoing efforts to federally repeal the Helms and Hyde Amendments and also developed, coordinated, and executed the national communications strategies for the most recent abortion rights cases that have come before the U.S. Supreme Court – June Medical Services LLC v. Russo (2020), Whole Woman’s Health v. Jackson (2021), and Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (2021). Prior to BerlinRosen, Emma was a senior communications associate at Avalere Health where she advised health providers, policymakers, and patient advocacy groups on strategic communications plans to engage with key stakeholders.
“We are proud and excited to welcome Emma as Director to the Feldman Strategies team, the first hire in what plans to be a year of growth for Feldman Strategies. The addition of Emma will ensure that we can continue to deliver unprecedented results for our clients across the progressive space,” said Andrew Feldman, Founder and Principal of Feldman Strategies. “Emma’s passion for progressive politics and extensive experience in media relations and integrated communications campaigns will establish her as the anchor of our firm’s expansion into a wider media landscape and the progressive movement.”
The firm’s addition of Emma Thomas comes on the heels of Nathan Janda joining the team as Communications Coordinator in the fall of 2021 and Mollie Laniado being promoted to Communications Associate.
