Emily McClintock works on a combination of leadership programming and team operations, including leading the Programs Team budgeting and hiring processes. Her passion for public service developed through her coursework in public policy and public administration and eventually led her to the Partnership. She enjoys finding efficiencies and brings this notion to her work both internally at the Partnership and externally in helping to solve challenges in the federal government. Emily’s favorite public servant is Leslie Knope, deputy park director and city councilwoman for Pawnee. While fictional, Leslie embodies the spirit of public service and is relentless in her drive to improve the city.
