Larson arrives from the office of Representative Jim Costa (D-CA), Chairman of the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock and Foreign Agriculture and a longtime friend of dairy and agriculture. She served as Costa’s Communications Director and Strategic Policy Associate, working on a wide range of legislative areas.  Prior to her work on the Hill, Claudia was a researcher and educator at Northeastern University – including agriculture-related projects – and other Boston-area institutions.  Claudia holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Political Science from Boston College and a Ph.D., also in Political Science, from Northeastern University.

“We’re very pleased to have Claudia join our team,” said NMPF President and CEO Jim Mulhern. “Her skills and background make her a valuable addition to NMPF’s government relations efforts and we’re excited to have her working with us on behalf of America’s dairy farmers and their cooperatives.”
