Rye is more than a familiar face on CNN and an NPR. She’s a U.S. attorney and the principle and CEO of IMPACT Strategies, a political advocacy firm in Washington, D.C.
In the past, she has served as the executive director and general counsel to the Congressional Black Caucus for the 112th Congress. When she’s not discussing the game of politics on the small screen, she is running the boards of the Congressional Black Caucus Institute, Congressional Black Caucus Political Action Committee, Seattle University School of Law Alumni, and Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network. If that weren’t impressive enough, Rye also serves as a senior adviser to the Government Technology and Services Coalition and is a member of the Links, Incorporated.
