Jeanette Tejada de Gomez

Our newest Associate has already worked closely with our team for many years, so we already know it’s a great fit.

When the opportunity arose for Jeanette Tejeda de Gomez to formally join G.S. Proctor & Associates, it was too good for either side to pass up. 

An experienced communications and policy professional, Jeanette most served for more than eight years as the Senior Public Relations Specialist with AAA Mid-Atlantic in the Washington, D.C., metro area and Maryland. During that time, she advocated for the safety and mobility of members and travelers of all modes through public relations and legislative efforts. 

“I worked closely with G.S. Proctor & Associates on AAA’s legislative efforts in the region,” she said. “I was impressed with how the company assists clients in achieving their goals. I am proud to join a company with such a solid background of success and integrity.”

Throughout her career, Jeanette has placed sound and solid research at the center of everything she does. At G.S. Proctor & Associates, her role will focus on creating scalable, research-based stakeholder engagement strategies at the local, state and federal levels. She will engage legislators, policymakers, stakeholders and impacted communities. 

“I will also engage with our lobbyists and clients to provide an analysis of strategic communication tactics and share my expertise, as necessary, to hone messaging that supports our clients’ interests and keeps stakeholders informed and engaged,” she said. “As we develop campaigns on various issues, I will provide the research and analytical background necessary for G.S. Proctor & Associates to evaluate all possible risks and rewards in pursuing a particular strategy.”

Jeanette was born in San Antonio, Texas. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communication and Spanish from Texas State University and a Master of Arts in International Relations from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio. She has also completed coursework toward a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Arizona and is a Fulbright-Hays Scholar.

Prior to relocating to the East Coast, she served as the Director of Communications and a Policy Advisor for the Arizona Senate Democratic Caucus. She has over 12 years of experience with government and public relations in Washington, D.C., Arizona and Texas.

Jeanette takes great pride in serving as the Vice-President of the Washington, D.C. Alumni Chapter of St. Mary’s University, an organization that helps area alumni and interns create a sense of community despite being so far from home. She is also an avid student of dance who enjoys performing at community events and an amateur genealogist who seeks to preserve and unearth the stories of generations past. Jeanette has an extremely supportive husband and they are parents to an inquisitive and kind 15-year-old son. 

Joe Green

The value of passion cannot be overstated. Those who are genuinely passionate about the work they do will find a way to achieve their goals. At G.S. Proctor & Associates, we have been fortunate to benefit from the passion that Joe Green brings to our team each day.

Over two separate stints, beginning in 2005, he has demonstrated this in all that he does. Now, as our Director of Strategic Partnerships, he plays a vital role in helping our clients succeed. He understands that relationships and connections are essential, and he finds a way to create win-win situations.

We are a stronger firm for all that he brings to the table. Read the brief Q&A below, and you’ll understand what we mean.

How long have you worked for G.S. Proctor & Associates?
I have worked here during two separate stints. The first was from January 2005 through December 2017, and I rejoined the firm in October 2020.

What gets you excited to start work each day?
Every day, at G.S. Proctor and Associates, I have the opportunity to work with some of the best and brightest people in civic life, government and business. The work we do supports efforts to achieve workable compromises between communities, public officials and the business community. 

We provide key insights to government regulators and key policymakers whose decisions will be felt far and wide. And we facilitate conversations and negotiations that impact many of the key issues that you read about and follow everyday. To be a meaningful part of the aforementioned activities excites me beyond all measure. It challenges me to be informed and prepared for opportunities presented to us each and everyday. 

What professional accomplishment are you most proud of?
Being a part of one of the most well-respected minority-owned lobbying and consulting firms is very uplifting to me. Moreover, there is a sense of pride in supporting the efforts of communities to hold their elected representatives accountable and provide forums for meaningful engagement between constituents, government actors, and the business community. Helping to facilitate that is incredibly rewarding. There isn’t one-case or one-win that captures that story — they all do.

In your view, what makes G.S. Proctor & Associates such a successful firm?
We are guided by our mission statement. Our firm approaches every person we have the opportunity to engage — with integrity, professionalism, and a commitment to service. These values not only benefit clients, the political community and the stakeholders we work with, but they also create a strong and resilient team dynamic. 

We trust each other at G.S. Proctor & Associates. We believe that every day, each member of our team does their level best to present their interpretation of our mission statement to everyone they interact with. 

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?
I benefit from having a lovely and patient wife and a precocious 4-year-old daughter, who just started pre-kindergarten. So it goes without saying that my time is often spoken for outside of work.

Best advice you were ever given?
Surround yourself with men and women of good character, sound judgment and who demonstrate a commitment to pursue the best possible outcome for all … and be sure to emulate their example.
