This week on 14th and G we invited Pia Carusone, co-founder of Republic Restoratives Distillery, and former Chief of Staff to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. On this episode, we’re here to discuss her unconventional path from political campaigns to owning a small batch, women-owned distillery and craft cocktail bar in the heart of Washington, D.C. Carusone also served as Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security until entering the private sector where she currently works at political firm, The Campaign Group.
