What you will learn

"8. You can't beat a plan with no plan." - Laws of Public Policy Process, Morton Blackwell

Jim DeMint

With the 2012 elections right around the corner – elections which I believe will be among the most important in our nation’s history – I truly believe the Leadership Institute’s efforts have never been more important.

Dena Espenscheid

Director of Grassroots Coalitions, Leadership Institute

Getting struck by lightning will not give you the superpowers needed to be a political mastermind who can take over the world. Dena Espenscheid knows this from first-hand experience. The shock did make her heart pound like watching voting returns, but more effort than just excess electrons is need to win on Election Night.

What will make you a political mastermind? Dena has been learning the answers to this question for more than 20 years.

During the quest for knowledge, she held a variety of positions in public policy organizations, advertising agencies, and political campaigns including, Coalition for a Strong America, National Ballot Access, American Majority, Open and Clean Government, Vote Yes for Life, and the National Abstinence Clearinghouse. Much of her work has been focused on grassroots organizing, and training volunteers and fellow staffers.

Immediately prior to joining the Leadership Institute, Dena was the Field Director for Donald J Trump for President in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC. As such, she oversaw ballot qualification, volunteer recruitment and training, and get out the vote efforts during the primaries. Then-candidate Trump won three of the four primary contests and had a better-than-expected showing in DC.

Dena graduated from Thomas More College in Northern Kentucky with degrees in Biology and Speech Communication. Dena serves the Leadership Institute as the Director of Grassroots Coalitions, where she travels the country training conservatives to be political masterminds. When she is home from LI training trips, she lives in Quantico, Virginia with her houseplants.
