Whitney Neal is the Director of Grassroots at FreedomWorks. She came to DC in 2012 from Flower Mound, Texas (near Dallas) where she spent the last five years as an eighth grade United States history teacher and working to elect fiscally conservative candidates, most recently Ted Cruz. Whitney holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations and a Master’s Degree in Public Policy and Administration with an emphasis in Education Policy. She loves all things Texas—including Mexican food, country music, BBQ, floating the river, and flip flop weather. When she’s not busy working with grassroots activists at FreedomWorks, you can find her hanging out with family, shoe shopping, reading the classics, or cheering on the Oklahoma Sooners, New York Giants, Dallas Stars, Texas Rangers, and San Antonio Spurs.
