Our Team

Jen Hensley

Principal; As a government relations leader with over 20 years of experience, I believe that regulatory and legislative affairs shape nearly every aspect of our society. I’m a veteran of numerous political and issue campaigns who has leveraged my diverse network to identify strategic opportunities, forecast policy shifts, and unify unconventional allies. My strength lies in understanding the rules of engagement and strategically navigating government systems to help shape public policy. The fourth generation of wheat farmers raised in Broadwater County, Montana, I hold a deep understanding and appreciation for hard work, innovation, and tradition.

From Our Clients

Over the past 8 years, we have been fortunate to work with Jen on a legislative level as the lobbyist for the Montana Distillers Guild - and as friends. 

Jen is extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and a decisive decision maker. Hard working, professional, and straight to the point - she gets the job done, and I'm happy to call on her knowing I'll get sound advice.
