Hill Climbers: Model UN Inspired Staff Director

Tom Williams/Roll Call
Despite better hours and a higher salary, subcommittee Staff Director Rachel Weaver returned to her old stomping grounds on the Hill.

Weaver left that position to work for the private sector, first at the major defense firm BAE Systems and then as the vice president of government affairs at a smaller homeland security technology company.

She returned to the Hill as the lead investigator of the oversight and investigations office, part of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. She  recently switched over to work under Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) as the new subcommittee staff director.

She described her private-sector work as having shorter hours and better pay. So why return to the Hill?

“It’s really nice to be able to work with people toward a common good, where people have a sense of purpose,” she said.
