House Judiciary Committee

Shelley Husband, Majority Chief of Staff and General Counsel

Husband has been working for Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte for 15 years, rising to chief of staff in 2002. She and Goodlatte are close, despite their baseball rivalry: She loves the Yankees and Goodlatte the Red Sox.

Husband's biggest challenge this year has been juggling the committee's proactive legislative agenda on patent-law overhaul and regulatory reform with the issues coming at it from other arenas—the Boston Marathon bombing, National Security Agency leaks, even immigration reform were thrust on the committee by outside circumstances. Immigration wound up taking much of the panel's time this year, but Goodlatte didn't want the work to overshadow other issues. Husband is charged with making that happen. "We wanted to make it clear that we weren't just going to do immigration," she says.

Husband, 40, has four children, which means she has to manage her work time carefully. "I go home, put everyone to bed, and then keep working."
