Decades after leaving Rep. Frank Wolf's (R-Va.) staff, a former appropriations staffer has returned to the long-tenured congressman's office.
Nancy Herbolsheimer has re-joined Wolf's staff as senior appropriations adviser after more than 25 years away. Herbolsheimer worked on the House Appropriations Committee for Wolf from 1985 to 1987. She previously served as press secretary to then-Rep. Jack Edwards (R-Ala.).
Wolf announced late last year that he would not seek an 18th term representing Northern Virginia in the House. The 75-year-old Wolf was first elected by Virginia's 10th district in 1981.
After leaving the Hill, Herbolsheimer embarked on a career which included public and private service with the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority, the Department of Transportation and the Federal Railroad Administration. She received a law degree from George Washington University in 1996.
After spending three years in Gov. George Ryan's (R-Ill.) Washington, D.C. office, in 2003 Herbolsheimer joined husband Robert in practicing law and lobbying at their namesake law firm.
