As a Monument rite of passage, we wanted to take a moment to introduce you to the newest member of the Monument Team.
Meet Noelle Jones, Monument’s newest Director. Noelle most recently came from Ketchum, a public relations firm, where she worked closely with clients on social media content strategy development, among other things. Before Ketchum, Noelle was a capstone communications consultant at the National Fitness Foundation. Noelle spent over 4 years on Capitol Hill with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and the offices of Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Representative Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) in their legislative shops. She received an undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina and a master’s degree from Georgetown University.
As the new kid on the Monument block we sat down with Noelle to get to know her a little better. Read the interview below to learn more:
What got you interested in politics?
My internship with the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. It started out as a way for me to meet people and get free food at receptions, but it ended up igniting my passion to want to achieve something for the greater good and make a difference in the world.
What is your favorite Monument in Washington, D.C.?
The National Monument.
If you could check one thing off your bucket list, what would it be?
To go scuba diving along the Great Barrier Reef.
If you could interview one person (dead or alive), who would it be?
Michelle Obama and/or Beyoncé.
How do you define success:
Success isn’t just measured by what title I have or how much money I make —more importantly, it’s measured by the difference I’m able to make in others’ lives.
