The American Moment team is expanding. We're excited to announce two new additions to our Board of Advisors: Alexa Walker, Director of Coalitions at The Heritage Foundation, and Theo Wold, the former Deputy Assistant to the President for Domestic Policy under President Donald Trump.

There, she led the caucus’ strategic outreach and managed communication to and coordination with coalition allies. Additionally, she worked closely with the professional policy staff on the introduction of legislative proposals and policy reports across a broad portfolio of domestic and foreign policy priorities. She also served as a senior advisor and internal liaison to RSC Members and their respective staff. Prior to her role at RSC, Walker served on the staffs of and advised leading conservative members of the U.S. House of Representatives including Congressman Mark Walker (R-NC), Congressman Dave Brat (R-VA), and Congressman Raul Labrador (R-ID).
