My Name is Guila Todd and I am the Legislative Representative in the Government Affairs department here at ACA. I have been with ACA for seven years. I have a varied background. I attended Hampton University and graduated with an undergraduate degree in Political Science. After graduation I worked for the Justice Department's office of Legislative Affairs. Then moved on to work at ABC news as a researcher. After leaving ABC news I worked in local government with the District of Columbia under then Mayor Anthony Williams.
Primarily my advocacy work for ACA has been in the education space. I work mostly on school counseling and career counseling issues, however I have experience working on all legislative issues that affect the counseling community.
If you would like to contact me, please send me an email or call me at 703-823-9800 x354.
I focus on state government legislation and issues such as licensure boards and portability as well as what’s happening on Capitol Hill and in the federal agencies. I have a psychology degree from the University of Colorado and I have been at ACA for two years. Prior to that I worked on Capitol Hill for Senator Daniel Moynihan of New York and Senator Mark Pryor of Arkansas. I have also worked at several government affairs firms.
