WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jim Risch (R-Idaho) welcomed the following staff to his Washington, D.C. office:

Parker Hollingshead, daughter of Scott and Brandi McHargue and Patrick Hollingshead, has accepted a position as Constituent Services Representative. Originally from Lewiston, Hollingshead graduated from Corban University in Salem, Ore. with a Bachelor’s degree in political science. Before joining Senator Risch’s office, she worked as a paralegal for a conservative nonprofit, focused on holding government unions accountable to public employees and interned for Senator John Barrasso (R-Wyo). Hollingshead is passionate about history and writing and looks forward to using these skills to further causes she believes in. In her spare time, she enjoys spending her weekends on the water, preferably on Lake Coeur d’Alene or the Snake River.

Devon Powers, daughter of James and Nancy Powers, is a Florida native with Idaho ties, and has also accepted a role as Constituent Services Representative. Powers is an alum of Berry College in Mount Berry, Ga., and American University where she earned her master’s degree in international relations. Prior to working on Capitol Hill, she worked for an organization focused on strengthening democratic norms and processes, as well as for the Idaho Republican Party and the Idaho state legislature. Powers is an avid reader and enjoys hiking in the mountains or relaxing on the beach in her hometown.

“I am pleased to welcome these two young professionals to my Washington, D.C. office,” said Risch. “I am confident they will serve the people of Idaho well.”
