According to NILE, its annual distinction spotlights 100 professionals who saw significant legislative success, have been innovative in their field, are held in high regard by their clients or members, and are individuals who give back to their community through charity or pro bono. Honorees are comprised of lobbyists, PAC managers, and grassroots professionals who have been nominated by their colleagues, Congressional staff, or clients for their outstanding work. NILE judges blindly evaluate each nominee to ensure receiving the honor of Top Lobbyists is 100% merit based.

She works with clients to identify funding opportunities and make key contacts throughout the federal government.

McGowan has experience working on issues related to transportation, cybersecurity, electric power and energy, environmental policy, telecommunications, the appropriations process, and federal budgetary matters.
