Jessie Bradley, Partner



Jessie serves as a Partner in Brushfire’s Washington, DC office.  As the daughter of a local elected official, she spent her early childhood in front of voters, going to parades, putting up yard signs, and attending local Democratic Club meetings.  It wasn’t until her first race after college when she was working for Senator Jean Carnahan in 2002 that she realized she had been knocking on doors her entire life. 


Prior to founding Brushfire, she has worked on races across the country.  From Alaska to Florida and several cities and states in between.  Her political experience is at all levels of electoral politics and advocacy.  Presidential staff in Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Florida.  Mayor’s races in Philadelphia, Houston, and Nashville.  Statewide, Congressional, and Senate races in New Mexico, Alaska, Virgina, Missouri, and Lousiana.  With sixteen years in politics, the list goes on and on. 


Jessie is a graduate of the University of Missouri and lives in Washington, DC with her cat, Moses. 

Maria Weeg, Partner



As a Partner in Brushfire’s Idaho office, Maria has been working on campaigns, driving issue advocacy and getting candidates elected since she was a kid spending Saturday afternoons knocking on doors or putting up yard signs with her dad. 

Later, winning seats in legislative chambers, electing mayors and city council members, winning targeted Congressional seats, and serving as the Executive Director of two state parties (Idaho and Arizona), she’s been on the front lines of national electoral politics for over a decade running programs for the League of Conservation Voters, Sierra Club, Senator Patty Murray, Washington United for Marriage, Planned Parenthood of Montana, the Arizona, Utah, Kansas, and Alaska Democratic Party, Colorado, Kansas, Arizona and Idaho House Caucuses among others.

Maria was raised in the desert landscape of southern Idaho and when she’s not working, you’ll most likely find her on a yoga mat, experimenting in the kitchen, or hanging out with her husband, Jeremy.

Alysha Prisbrey, Sr. Programming Specialist



After several years of successful work in Idaho politics, Alysha Saxton, a native of Boise, serves as a Sr. Programming Specialist for Brushfire Strategies. She started her professional career interning in the Idaho Legislature, which propelled her to positions with the Idaho Young Democrats, the City of Boise working with the Boise City Council, and as a campaign manager for several successful local races.


Alysha has several years of political phone work experience and has helped ensure projects like paid family leave, protection of national monuments, and women’s reproductive rights are successful. From script production to project management, Alysha uses best practices and attention to detail to make sure it goes off without a hitch.


When she isn’t working you can find her exploring the Boise foothills or trying a new local brewery.
