Often referred to as “a force of nature” by fellow free market activists, Kerri (Houston) Toloczko is a public policy analyst and expert in coalition building and messaging on domestic and international public policy issues.
Kerri is currently National Training and Networks Director and a Fellow at Conservative Partnership Institute’s Election Integrity Network, Senior Advisor for the Florida Fair Elections Coalition, and Director of Strategic Partnerships for the Virginia Institute for Public Policy.
She is also the Meeting Chair for the Southwest Florida Center-Right Coalition, a monthly gathering of conservative and libertarian activists, policy advocates, elected officials and the business community.

Appointed in December 2004 by then-House Speaker Dennis Hastert, Ms. Toloczko served two terms as a Commissioner on the Congressional U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission and was nominated to serve on President George W. Bush’s Commission to Strengthen Social Security.
She works as a private consultant domestically and international on issue advocacy, editorial writing, coalition/stakeholder management and policy development for the policy community and private clients.
Her responsibilities have included all facets of marketing, policy research and issue advocacy for conservative think tanks, as well as acting as liaison to Capitol Hill, the White House, state legislators, and free market policy centers in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
A strong proponent of individual and economic liberty and free markets, Mrs. Toloczko lectures on public policy and legislative issues and the proper role of government, and has provided testimony to Congress on a number of topics.
