Acuitas Recognizes Talent of One of Lansing’s Best Lobbyists

LANSING, Mich., June 2, 2020 – Lansing-based government relations firm, Acuitas, has given a team member a new title in recognition of her leadership and exemplary work on many levels.

Andrea Cascarilla was named senior legislative director at Acuitas after seven years with the company.

“As more organizations seek out our firm to achieve their government relations goals, we discovered a need to expand Andrea’s role on our team, particularly working with clients and mentoring fellow team members,” said Kevin Korpi, principal. “Andrea has served with integrity and distinction. As a lead lobbyist since nearly the beginning, she has earned a tremendous amount of respect and trust for her integral work.

Most recently, Cascarilla was recognized by state Rep. Aaron Miller, R-Sturgis, former Rep. Isaac Robinson, D-Detroit, and the Michigan Mental Health Counselors Association for her work on PA 96 of 2019 – a law that ensures Michigan’s licensed professional counselors can continue to provide treatment to hundreds of thousands of residents in need.

As a result of the successful creation of PA 96, Cascarilla was recognized by the MMHCA as an honorary member of their organization. They cited her efforts of steadfastness, positive and tireless energy, and commitment as reasons for receiving the award.

The framed certificate reads, “We are proud to have engaged the very best lobbyist to support our cause for the protection of Michigan LLPC/LPC’s and have the testimony that proves it. Your expertise was evident and successful…”.

Cascarilla is responsible for managing many clients and throughout her time at Acuitas and has played a direct role in several successful appropriations efforts for clients to help them improve our state, from health care and education to infrastructure and economic development.

“Andrea’s accomplishments with Acuitas are numerous, extraordinary, and prove just how instrumental she is to the team,” said Sarah Hubbard, principal.
