Bio

A Virginia native who grew up in a family of teachers, Rodney has dedicated his career to public service. Rodney attended Virginia's oldest university - The College of William and Mary - where he earned both his undergraduate and law degrees, and where he was instrumental in founding the Pulley Family Endowment, which supports public service work by students. As an attorney, Rodney represented local governments in Virginia, where he learned firsthand what good governance can look like and the positive impact it can bring to working families. He was also instrumental in establishing and expanding free legal assistance programs while running his practice. In the late 90's, Rodney saw the potential for technology to transform government, and created Virginia Interactive, where he led a public/private partnership with the Commonwealth to move information and citizen/business services online, helping put Virginia at the forefront of the online revolution. Rodney has continued this work with his current company, Impact Makers. Impact Makers' "all profits to charity" model has led the company to contribute nearly $3 million in financial and pro bono support to nonprofits that help families facing health care, education and housing issues. Rodney was elected to the House of Delegates in 2019. As a delegate representing the 73rd District he helped pass laws improving Virginia's early childhood educational opportunities, adolescent mental health programs, and environmental protections, including Virginia's ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.
