Renae C. Cowley Is Focused

Professional barrel racer and former Miss Rodeo Utah, Renae C. Cowley has a unique combination of skills that have catapulted her into the hierarchy of Utah’s top lobbyists. Previously managing political campaigns, teams of interns, and statewide Super PAC races, Ms. Cowley now lobbies on legislation dealing with drones, autonomous vehicles, digital privacy, and Government Records Access Management. And she has a talent for putting her clients at ease. “Being one of very few women in my industry has been a challenge that I have turned into a strength,” she says. “I can be firm and tenacious in fighting for my clients in a way many men can’t.” Outside of lobbying, Ms. Cowley has a large following on social media and her blog for rodeo action and horse training.
