Lucia Alonzo serves as Chief of Staff at Ferox Strategies, where she leads the firm’s research, analysis, and writing while maintaining a busy schedule advocating for our clients on Capitol Hill. Lucia is tasked with keeping our team on-schedule and on-target while ensuring top-quality daily client service.
Lucia began her career as a constituent services representative in the Kansas City office of Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO). But soon, she packed her bags and quickly rose through the ranks to become a policy aide specializing in immigration and border security, education and workforce, and government affairs issues in the Senator’s Washington, D.C., office.
A few years later, Lucia then joined the Podesta Group, top-ranked bipartisan government affairs firm, where she again distinguished herself as a top researcher and analyst helping clients and senior staff understand both the legislative and political spheres of Washington. Lucia excels in several sectors including appropriations, immigration and border security, defense and homeland security, transportation and infrastructure, and education and workforce. She is also an experienced Capitol Hill advocate, lobbying on border security, economic development, and nutrition issues.
