Victoria Haber supports Lewis-Burke clients by tracking legislation and federal activities pertaining to agriculture, biological sciences, and economic development. Specifically, Victoria monitors emerging opportunities within the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Small Business Association (SBA), and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Issue Areas: Agriculture, biological sciences, the arts and humanities, broadband/wireless, and economic development.
Additional Experience: Victoria’s love for DC’s energy began even before she joined the Lewis-Burke team, as an intern with a member of the Ohio delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives. Throughout her internship, she developed a knowledge of economic development and agricultural policy as well as a commitment to advocating for these issues. Most recently, Victoria supported the Ohio Recreation and Parks Department with budget management and engaging with community stakeholders.
Vital Statistics: Victoria was born and raised in Ohio and completed her undergraduate degree at Ohio State University, where she studied economics and public affairs and graduated magna cum laude. In her free time, she enjoys exploring the Smithsonian museums and DC memorials, traveling to new places, and cheering on Cleveland sports teams (even when there is little to cheer for).
