Martin Flynn Public Affairs is proud to partner with Brynn Brady and her company, Ceiba Consulting. Based in Tacoma, Washington, she brings more than 16 years of experience building relationships with state and local elected officials, city and county governments and non-profit communities.
After graduating from Washington State University, Brynn served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala from 1997-1999. Upon her return, she began her career as a Senior Planner in Pierce County where she had direct involvement in developing local, regional and state land use and natural resource policies and regulations.
She applied this local experience toward a new role in government relations as Pierce County's primary advocate for land use and natural resource issues and eventually covered other county government interests including budget requests, transportation, economic development and criminal justice.
Ceiba Consulting was created in 2014 in order to realize Brynn's talents in advocacy and facilitation. In Olympia, she has represented clients with a variety of interests including general government, public health, health care, transportation, natural resources, education, and operational and capital funding.
She also contracts with other agencies and groups to manage specific programs and deliver outcomes. She facilitates the process of discussing interests, identifying priorities and communicating that information to appropriate entities.
Brynn and her husband have two children and live in Tacoma's Stadium District.
