Rebecca Tweed is currently the President of the Board for Emerging Leaders for Oregon. She has been a political consultant and campaign manager in Oregon for the last ten years and during that time has worked on over 40 different campaigns varying from judicial, mayoral, city council, state representative, and ballot measures across the state.
In 2010, she served as the Political Director for the Oregon House Republican Caucus where she led the charge on the campaigns leading the Oregon House to a historical 30-30 tie between Republicans and Democrats.
She has also worked with non-political clients such as law firms, small local businesses and non-profits, doing fundraising, public relations, social media management, media training and communications development. She is regularly asked to speak at high schools, colleges and conferences about political strategy.
Rebecca was recently featured in Portland Monthly Magazine’s March 2015 edition as one of the “10 Amazing Women Who Are Changing Oregon.”
She graduated from Syracuse University in 2005 where she studied Political Science, Philosophy, and Public Policy, with focus areas in International Relations and Women’s Studies. In her free time, she enjoys yoga and running, international travel, and volunteers for the Union Gospel Mission of Portland and the Oregon Humane Society.
