Meet Maggie
VP of Policy & Government Relations @ TWGStrategy

Maggie Ruffini is a scholar, strategist, and most notably, a leader.  Maggie has her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Public Administration with a minor in International Affairs from the University of Northern Iowa. During her time as an undergraduate student, Maggie’s passion for servant leadership began, and she completed internships for both United States Senator Charles E. Grassley (R-IA) and Iowa State Senator Jeff Danielson. In addition to her studies, Maggie served as the University’s Director of Government Relations, advocating for the University on behalf of student interests at local, state, and federal levels. In 2018, Maggie was recognized and awarded by Black Hawk County YWCA’s Cedar Valley “Woman of Tomorrow,” for her exceptional leadership, scholastic ability, volunteer service and special achievements.  

Actively involved on Capitol Hill for several years, Maggie worked in the United States Senate until early 2022 handling Judiciary Issues for Senator Joni K. Ernst (R-IA). Maggie has an abundance of experience developing and advancing legislation over the finish line, including the Violence Against Women Act, in which she had a hand in initiating change and justice for survivors of domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking in the US.  

With Capitol Hill and strategic expertise, as well as her ever-growing knowledge of the judiciary portfolio including issues affecting women and children, online exploitation, human trafficking prevention, and criminal justice reform, Maggie effectively leads the TWG Policy & Government Relations team and guides our clients to success. As the Vice President of Policy and Government Relations, she navigates political landscapes while leveraging government entities to work in TWG’s client’s favor.  

Outside of work, Maggie takes pleasure in traveling, entertaining friends, and spending quality time with her family. Although an Iowa native, Maggie now lives full-time in Falls Church, Virginia, with her husband and daughter. 

Leveraging the government to enact policies or legislation can be a critical component to a successful strategy in achieving your goals and objectives.

However, many organizations don’t consider it an option because of how frustrating and complex navigating the government can be.  The TWG team brings decades of experience working alongside and within both legislative and executive branches of government.

We are here to support your policy needs throughout the entire process – drafting policy, setting meetings, pitching your ideas, navigating appropriations and earmarks, or pushing it across the goal line – we have the experience and connections to get the government working for you!

Your Success is Our Success.
