Rachel Huxley-Cohen
Press Secretary for Congresswoman Lois Frankel (FL)
Location: Washington, DC

Q. Job advice in three words? Never stop talking. I know this might sound weird, but hear me out. When I was considering a career change, I found the most helpful thing I did was just talk about my goals and ambitions. Talking to friends, family and people within my network helped me sort out what my next step should be. The more you voice what you're looking for, the more connections and opportunities you draw in. So don't stop talking about what you want!

Q. If you had to live in another city, which would it be? As much as Washington feels like home, my heart and soul is in London! I studied abroad there in college and I just love the culture, people, funky neighborhoods, pubs, river walks, skyline views and of course - the fish 'n chips.

Q. How do you unwind after work? My most reliable unwinding activities include yoga, pilates, going for long walks, watching re-runs of Friends or Scrubs, or catching up with friends over happy hour (as a Bostonian, happy hour is still somewhat of a novelty for me!).
