Jennifer P. Lim is the founder of Republican Women For Hillary (RWFH), an independent grassroots volunteer group that aims to provide Republican women with a voice in the 2016 presidential election. RWFH’s focus is on developing thought leadership in the media, organizing networking events, and serving as a clearinghouse for broader Get Out The Vote efforts that support the organization’s core values: liberty, equality, and the belief that there are individual rights that cannot be taken away.
Lim created RWFH in Spring 2016, and the organization’s clear and concise mission statement - that a Donald Trump presidency would be in opposition with the Republican Party’s bedrock values - quickly earned national and international attention, with press coverage in varied outlets and publications including CNN, Fox News, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and Glamour. As result, Ms. Lim was invited to speak on the closing night of the 2016 Democratic National Convention, where she addressed a television audience of close to 33 million people.
Lim was formerly the Director of Health Policy in the Labor, Immigration, and Employee Benefits Division at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a position she held since September 2014 until her focus on RWFH this fall. In this capacity, Lim handled health care issues affecting employers and health sector members of the Chamber, in addition to researching and developing the Chamber’s overall policy on health care reform. Lim’s focus was on regulatory accountability, health information technology, wellness, and medication adherence, among other areas.
Lim’s responsibilities included lobbying on various Chamber priorities, crafting regulatory comments and letters to Congress, presenting the Chamber’s health policy agenda through briefings and speeches. Lim also spearheaded the Chamber’s Annual Health Care Summit, and oversaw the organization’s social media strategy on health care.
Lim joined the Chamber as Manager of Health Policy in 2011, and was promoted to Senior Manager of Health Policy in September 2013. Prior to joining the Chamber, Lim was an associate at the attorney placement firm of Garrison & Sisson, where she specialized in legal market and small business policy research. During law school she spent time with the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, where she worked with legal counsel on health care and employment issues.
Lim is a 2010 graduate of The Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law, and received her B.A. in public interest policy, cum laude, from the University of Mary Washington in 2007. Lim is a member of the District of Columbia Bar. She also serves as the Vice Chair of Communications for the New Member Committee at the Junior League of Washington, and is on the board of the Lever Fund.
