Nate Shelter has worked both in and around government for nearly five years, helping organizations reach their goals through effective communications.

He uses a combination of research, storytelling, and technology to build campaigns that establish organizations as thought leaders in their field. And he has deep experience conveying organizations’ complex issues to their key stakeholders – the public, businesses, the media, and policymakers at all levels of government – helping them communicate their impact, enhance their relevance, and increase funding levels. Before joining the firm, Nate led communications for the U.S. Department of Energy’s $200 million building energy efficiency program. He developed and implemented a comprehensive communications strategy that built the program’s reputation among Congress, the Administration, and the energy industry. The strategy included an underlying messaging framework, analytical tools to track the program’s accomplishments, outreach products, and in-person events with key congressional and industry leaders. He also redesigned their website, started a blog and a weekly e-newsletter, and amplified their social media presence.

Nate has worked at a number of strategic communications and government affairs firms, crafting compelling stories that move opinion for clients in sectors such as healthcare, software, technology development, entertainment, manufacturing, biofuels, and clean energy. He also worked at a digital design agency, partnering with healthcare and financial services companies to improve people’s digital experiences.

Nate holds a Bachelor’s degree in Public Communication from American University.
