Chairman Conaway Announces New Staff Hire

Today, House Agriculture Committee Chairman K. Michael Conaway (R-TX) announced that Jennifer Tiller will join the committee as Professional Staff for nutrition and welfare issues. Tiller, a native of Syracuse, New York, has been working in Washington, D.C. since 2012 as the Director of America Works of Washington, D.C., where her attention was devoted to program operations, public policy, and contract and grant acquisition. Prior to that, Tiller worked in a similar capacity for America Works of Albany, Inc. (New York). Tiller holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in European History from the University at Albany, SUNY, a Master of Public Administration from Marist College, and a Master of Business Administration from Syracuse University. “The House Agriculture Committee devoted an immense amount of time and effort this past Congress to fully examine the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), as well has how nutrition plays an integral role in the lives of all Americans. Jennifer’s knowledge and expertise in this area will be a tremendous asset to us as we move towards reauthorizing SNAP and making sure the program helps participants rise out of poverty and into a better future. I look forward to having her as part of our team,” said Chairman Conaway.
