Barack Obama Presidential Campaign, Primary and General Election, Multiple States

I began as a volunteer in New Hampshire and was hired soon after. Over the course of seven elections, I trained thousands of volunteers, managed my own team of staff, organized Pres. Obama’s first town hall meeting of the General Election and still found time to register 2000 new voters.

  • Trained, supervised and managed other campaign organizers and over a thousand volunteers in 7 states
  • Set up 2 field offices – found and furnished premises with latest technology on a tight budget in a rural area
  • Convinced over 2000 people to register to vote through calls, canvassing gas stations, churches and homes
  • Recruited the most out-of-state volunteers for any rural county in PA primary using just a phone
  • Briefed Pres. Barack Obama about southwest VA for first speech of general election
