Biography: Aliscia Andrews is a working mom, a Marine Corps veteran and a national security policy expert. She was born in Hampton, VA and spent her childhood traveling the U.S. while her father served in the Air Force. As a child, she was actively engaged in the Church, played sports, and volunteered in her community. In the fall of 2005, after watching a high school friend make the ultimate sacrifice for our county, she knew her calling was to serve in the Marines. (Source: https://www.andrewsva.com/)

In 2010, Aliscia deployed with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit for the maiden voyage of the USS Mesa Verde. While serving, she provided Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief following the devastating earthquake in Haiti and continued to serve throughout Europe, the Horn of Africa, and the Middle East.

Following her tenure in the Marine Corps, Aliscia continued to refine her analytical skills in both the public and private sectors. She completed her MBA in 2015 at Ashford University and continued on to attain a Certificate in Cybersecurity Strategy Management from Georgetown University the following year. Her work focused primarily on finding solutions to challenging government problems as a strategic policy advisor in support of multiple government agencies both in and out of the Intelligence Community.

In November of 2019, frustrated by how out of touch politicians in the 10th District were failing her community, Aliscia decided to run for Congress. She won the Republican nomination against deeply established opponents and received over 200,000 votes in the general election. (Source: https://www.andrewsva.com/)

Following the election, Aliscia remained deeply involved in keeping leaders accountable in Northern Virginia. She brought attention to Loudoun County’s refusal to open the schools in 2021, and helped spark the viral news story of “the mad dad” testifying at the Loudoun County School Board. She was an early leader of the “Parents Matter” movement that quickly spread both around the Commonwealth and across the country. (Source: https://www.andrewsva.com/)

An advisor to the Glenn Youngkin campaign, she worked tirelessly to elect three statewide Republicans for the first time since 2009. Recognizing her extensive national security expertise and her eagerness for public service, Governor Youngkin appointed Aliscia as Virginia’s first-ever Deputy Secretary of Cybersecurity in January of 2022.

In that position, she played a critical role in elevating the cybersecurity posture of the Commonwealth. She developed a priority-based cybersecurity program and a comprehensive training program that strengthened the cybersecurity culture of Virginia’s government. (Source: https://www.andrewsva.com/)

Soon after, Aliscia was elevated and appointed Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security and Homeland Security Advisor to the Governor. She provided strategic leadership, enhanced the readiness of emergency response systems and implemented the first Cyber Security Incident Response plan, which outlined strategies to neutralize cyber security threats. She also conducted oversight of various government offices including the Virginia Department of Emergency Management, the Virginia Parole Board, the Department of Corrections and the Virginia State Police. She is deeply proud of the advances she helped lead in protecting the security and safety of the Commonwealth. (Source: https://www.andrewsva.com/)

With an accomplished record of service, Aliscia is uniquely qualified to serve the people of Virginia’s 10th District. She has seen first-hand the consequences of our current failed leadership: out-of-control cost of living, schools that are failing our children, and a weakened national defense. She is running for Congress to bring results-driven leadership to the 10th District. (Source: https://www.andrewsva.com/)

Meeting, engaging, and working with people across the world during her time as a Marine afforded Aliscia a unique perspective and understanding of the world and human life. That experience in service to others remains a priority. In her free time, Aliscia continues to serve her community. She volunteers with disadvantaged children’s groups, church ministries, boys youth baseball teams, coaches cheerleading, and mentors transitioning Veterans. Aliscia resides in Aldie, Virginia with her husband, two sons, daughter, and puppy. (Source: https://www.andrewsva.com/)
