Ice Miller Welcomes Senior Counsel Jessica Voltolini, Continues Growth of Public Affairs Group
Ice Miller LLP is pleased to welcome Jessica Voltolini as a senior counsel and legislative director in the Firm’s Public Affairs Group.
Prior to joining Ice Miller, Jessica served a deputy legislative liaison for the Office of Ohio Governor John R. Kasich. In this role, she was the administration’s advocate regarding early childhood education, K-12 education, higher education and workforce development. She served as a liaison between the Governor’s education policy team, cabinet directors and the Ohio general assembly.
Jessica previously served as in-house counsel for the Ohio Tuition Trust Authority and as the legislative and policy director for the Ohio Department of Education. In these roles, she managed government relations for Ohio’s CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Program and developed and advanced education policy initiatives and legislative priorities to support the state’s PreK-12 education system.
“Jessica’s extensive public policy and legislative experience in the state of Ohio uniquely positions her to help clients navigate their public affairs needs,” said Richard Barnhart, managing partner of Ice Miller. “Her understanding of the intricacies of government, especially regarding education, brings a valuable perspective to our Public Affairs Team.”
Throughout her career, Jessica has supported legal and legislative efforts for education through her work with the Ohio School Boards Association and the Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools.
