It's been quite a year for former Senate staffer Amber Marchand, who left her longtime professional life on Capitol Hill and a little later welcomed her third child to the world.  

Marchand, a former staffer for the Republican National Committee, National Republican Senatorial Campaign and House Homeland Security Committee, moved to the Senate in 2011, where she worked for Missouri Republican Roy Blunt from the beginning of the 113th Congress until April, when she went to work at Hamilton Place Strategies as managing director. She says she will miss working with Blunt, as well as “seeing so many friends, reporters, and colleagues simply walking through the halls." But, she said she “was grateful to learn from the best in the Senate.”
