AHHC OF NC Announces New VP of Government Relations & Public Policy and Contract Lobbyists
AHHC is pleased to announce that Julia Adams-Scheurich, who has been serving as Interim Director of Government Relations & Public Policy for the last several weeks has accepted the full time role of Vice President of Government Relations & Public Policy. Julia previously served as contract lobbyist for AHHC, and her coming on board full time means further enhancement of representation for our home care, private pay, home health, hospice, and palliative care members. Julia joining the team is great news for the behavioral health and I/DD service providers as well, and AHHC looks forward to growing that segment of its member services.
In addition to our contract lobbyist, Matt Wolfe, JD (and AHHC Legal Counsel), AHHC has signed a contract with Ken Melton & Associates, one of the highest-ranked, bi-partisan lobbying firms in North Carolina. The AHHC Advocacy Team, will continue to be overseen by AHHC President and CEO, Tim Rogers and Julia Adams-Scheurich.
Julia Adams-Scheurich has been named AHHC’s new Vice President of Government Relations and Public Policy! Before that, Julia was the Owner and Director of Government Relations at Oak City Government Relations, LLC. She was most recently the Director of Government Relations for The Arc of North Carolina for the past 10 years as well as a contract lobbyist for many interests, mostly healthcare, before the NC General Assembly; and she is ranked as one of the most influential lobbyists in North Carolina by the nonpartisan North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research. Julia began her career in policy and advocacy working to promote inclusion in the arts in North Carolina. Her career spans both campaign work as a member of the field staff for Erskine Bowles in 2004 and lobbying on policy issues in the field of education, health care, housing, social justice policy for people with disabilities, ethics reform and voting rights. Julia is also pursuing her Master of Studies in Law in Health Law and Policy- scheduled to graduate in May, 2021 from Wake Forest University. “I have known and worked with Julia since 2010, hired her a contract lobbyist, and have seen first-hand her tremendous, bi-partisan advocacy skills. Working with our new and existing contract lobbyists, she brings all the right leadership and ground-game components to AHHC to make our overall Advocacy efforts and new initiatives even stronger than ever. I could not be more proud and yes, thrilled for the staff, Board and the home care and hospice members to have such a superior advocacy team lead by Julia and myself, Ken Melton and Associates, and Matt Wolf of Parker, Poe, Adams and Bernstein!” Tim Rogers, President & CEO AHHC of NC.
