A Senate Finance Committee aide has taken a bite into a new government affairs job at Apple Inc., the tech giant.
Kristin Smith joined the government affairs staff at Apple after serving two years on the Hill. Most recently Smith worked as an assistant to the staff director for the Senate Finance Committee under Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and, before that, Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.). She got her start in the Capitol in Baucus' office as a staff assistant.
Smith holds a bachelor's degree in international relations and comparative politics from the University of Montana.
