As the administrative co-leader of Comcast’s Washington, D.C., office, Maxfield plays a pivotal role in building the company’s presence on The Hill, and she has assembled an experienced and highly skilled federal government affairs team to help. An avid runner, Maxfield sees real world value in athletics. “I believe all sports, whether one is a casual participant or a professional athlete, take dedication and hard work,” she says.

How do you define a successful career?

I define a successful career as doing something you enjoy, doing it well, and being recognized by your colleagues and peers for the work you do.

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

Best trick to have the personal-professional balance for me is to exercise, take time for personal travel, and spending quality time with family and friends.

When not in the office, where are we most likely to find you?

When not in the office you will find me either watching, attending, or participating in sports. I believe all sports, whether one is a casual participant or a professional athlete, take dedication and hard work. I am one of three girls and grew up with a love and appreciation of sports from my dad and grandfather. My favorite sports to watch are college and NFL football. I am a Tampa Bay Buccaneers season ticket holder, and enjoy going to the games on Sunday to cheer the Bucs on (even if they are not very good!). I am also an avid runner, who ran- and finished- the New York Marathon last year. I am a new road bike owner and enjoy cycling. Additionally, I try to keep up with my golf game, which is hard to do given the time commitment golf takes.
