Mrs. Ryan is Vice President at Concordia Group LLC. At Concordia Group, Ryan works closely on the day-to-day operations and strategic planning for the American Future Fund, one of the nation’s most influential political and policy advocacy organizations, as well as The Progress Project.
Mrs. Ryan served as Iowa senior advisor to Sen. Rick Santorum’s 2012 Presidential Campaign. In that role, Ryan planned and implemented a campaign that helped the perceived underdog candidate win the 2012 Iowa Caucuses. After the Iowa Caucuses, Ryan took a leave of absence from Concordia Group to serve as deputy national campaign manager for Rick Santorum for President, where she directed national operations and campaign advance for a campaign that won 11 Republican primaries across the nation—the most primary victories for a grassroots candidacy since Ronald Reagan’s 1976 campaign.
Prior to joining Concordia Group, Mrs. Ryan worked on Capitol Hill and around the country, including serving as Iowa political director for Gov. Mitt Romney’s 2008 presidential campaign and as a part of President Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign. Ryan also served as the political director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin from 2005-2006.
