Monica Buchanan, Director of Corporate Communications
HARTFORD, CONN.- Aimee Monroy Smith, a government affairs professional with a background in legislative and grassroots advocacy for nonprofit organizations, has been named Senior Vice President of Government Relations and External Affairs at Connecticut Children’s.
Smith, a resident of Westport, Conn., joins Connecticut Children’s from The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) for Genomic Medicine, where she was director of government relations.
In her new role, Smith will build and maintain Connecticut Children’s relationships with government officials and civic leaders on the federal, state and local levels. She will also serve as the organization’s liaison to civic organizations and trade groups in Fairfield County and represent Connecticut Children’s statewide.
“I am honored to join the largest pediatric health system in the state,” Smith says. “Connecticut Children’s has recruited some of the nation’s most innovative pediatric experts and is leading the way in family centered care. I look forward to sharing its mission and working with elected officials and communities around the state.”
Before joining JAX, Smith worked for Pitney Bowes as the manager of government and regulatory affairs focused on state legislative and global public policy issues. Her previous experience includes advocacy and public affairs positions at the American Cancer Society in Meriden, Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association in Jackson Heights, N.Y., and the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
Smith earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Rhode Island, and a master’s degree in public policy from Trinity College in Hartford.
