Ryan Sims is an experienced advocacy communications professional, having supported numerous political and advocacy organizations and campaigns through his career. In his time in Washington, DC, he’s led digital and traditional communications efforts for many different issue areas. From education advocacy at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, to women’s rights advocacy with EMILY’s List and NARAL, to environmental organizations like Environmental Defense Fund, to electoral campaigns and independent expenditures, his career has been spent making sure the right message reaches the right audience, at the right time. That work has helped raise millions of dollars, engage millions of supporters, compel voters, and affect policy change at the national, state, and local level.
Outside of the office, Ryan is a substantial live music fan and ever-increasingly snobbish wine dork. He’s also quite fond of stressing himself beyond reasonable limits during University of Kentucky sporting events, the school from which he holds a bachelor’s degree. He also holds a master’s from the George Washington University and is quite thrilled to live in a state with limited humidity.
