Former committee staffer looks to boost business in the District

Posted by John Sugden on May 21, 2014
A former Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee staffer has left Capitol Hill to be a top executive at the D.C. Chamber of Commerce.

Krystal Blumfield has been named Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Washington business network. The D.C. Chamber has never filed to lobby at the national level.

Blumfield joined the committee staff in 2009 as tax and procurement counsel and remained in the position for the past 5 years. While working for the committee, she helped develop the tax agenda and drafted legislation. While there she worked under both Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.)

Blumfield holds a JD from the Southern University Law Center and an LLM in tax law from the University of Florida's Levin College of Law. She previously worked as an attorney for the Louisiana Department of Revenue.
