Sen. Richard Shelby‘s Communication Director Torrie Miller Matous has a new gig — she’s been tapped as Alabama 2nd District U.S. Rep. Martha Roby’s new Chief of Staff.

Matous will move to the other side of the Capitol, where she’ll serve as Roby’s top adviser, leading a team of 15 staff members working from offices in Washington, D.C., Montgomery, Dothan, and Andalusia.

Having worked with Shelby since 2014, Matous previously worked in several capacities for Texas-Republican U.S. Rep. Pete Sessions and the House Committee on Rules starting in 2009. She will officially begin in Roby’s office on Monday, March 13th.

“I’m thrilled to announce that Torrie Miller Matous is coming on board as my new Chief of Staff,” Roby said. “Torrie is an exceptional leader with the right skill set to manage my office and all our various efforts.

“It is an exciting time for our office. With new committee responsibilities and the opportunity to work with a unified Republican government, we are in a great position to deliver results on behalf of our state and district. Torrie’s leadership will be essential to empowering my staff to serve the needs of Alabama’s Second District and to advance our commonsense, conservative solutions.”

Matous, a Montgomery native, said she is eager to join Rep. Roby’s office and lead her hometown congressional office.

“It is an honor to join Representative Martha Roby’s team that works every day on behalf of the people of Alabama’s Second District,” Matous said. “Our unified government presents a great opportunity for Representative Roby to continue fighting for conservative principles in Washington. I look forward to working with her and am particularly excited to serve my hometown congressional district in this new capacity.”

Matous will replace Roby’s longtime Chief of Staff Stephen Boyd, who recently joined Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice.
