Former Senate staffer Laura Chambers seems to have outgrown Capitol Hill, as she is now director of government affairs at the Fertilizer Institute.
Chambers worked for Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) from late 2010 until earlier this month. She was a legislative assistant for the West Virginia Democrat for the past year.
The Fertilizer Institute is the industry's policy and communications voice in the United States. The Institute lobbies on a variety of issues including natural gas, environmental regulation and transportation.
While in Rockefeller's office, Chambers handled environmental protection, agriculture and natural resources issues. She studied business administration and marketing at West Virginia University.
Rockefeller is slated to retire this year, putting a large and seasoned staff on the market for new jobs.
