Our heroine, Justine Swensen, is headed to Washington DC, and she's determined to find a place where she can truly make a difference. She's got the resume and passion to take her from the lowest staff positions in the legislative branch all the way to upper management posts in executive branch agencies and departments. She'll exert pressure from inside the Executive Office of the President, and as an external consultant and Non-Profit leader. She'll meet with journalists, think tanks, and lobbysists before running for higher political offices herself. All along the way she'll meet funny, sad, inspiring, and infuriating bureaucrats, but only after 30 years of tilting at these windmills and navigating Kafkaesque mazes will she finally learn the moral of her own story. Follow along with her to learn it for yourself as well.
