SVP, Federal Government Affairs


Maxfield has spent the better part of a decade at Comcast overseeing its congressional lobbying efforts. She’s the administrative co-leader of the company’s D.C. office and has been instrumental in building Comcast’s presence in the nation’s capital. “We work closely with a cross-section of Members and decision-makers, and being able to do this with a top notch team of people both in Washington and throughout Comcast and the cable industry is incredibly rewarding,” she says.

What is your favorite part of your job?
The majority of the issues we work on at Comcast and NBCUniversal are on the cutting-edge of technology and policy, with a broad impact on our economy and the way people live and communicate today.
How do you define success in the workplace?
Success comes when you accomplish goals and objectives together as a team. And the secret to this success is to empower the people around you to help them succeed, while working with them to get the job done.
Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?
This is probably the most difficult aspect for me of being a professional woman. It is never a 50-50 split, even though that is what you strive for. Every day for me involves juggling my professional and personal life. I prioritize and multitask in order to achieve as much of a balance as I can. There are always days when one is a priority over the other so I do the best I can.
