Press release: PFI

The Pet Food Institute (PFI), whose members make the vast majority of dog and cat food and treats in the United States, welcomes Dana Waters as the association’s policy analyst. She will work with the policy team on federal and state legislative issues and international trade efforts. Additionally, Waters will assist the senior director of business operations and programs while reporting directly to the CEO.

“We are excited to offer Dana Waters a full-time position at PFI. She was a very impressive 2022 summer intern and is well deserving of this opportunity,” said CEO Dana Brooks. Before joining PFI, Waters served as a government relations intern for public relations firm GP3 Partners, working directly with the state government relations manager of the Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance (MITA) to track Right to Repair legislation across all 50 states and Puerto Rico. In that role, she helped MITA advocate for the proper servicing of medical devices to protect patients and health providers.

Waters holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science with a concentration in International Affairs from Georgia State University in Atlanta, Georgia. Originally from Douglas County, Georgia, she now lives in Washington, DC.

PFI and its members who make the vast majority of all U.S. pet food and treat products, are committed to helping pets enjoy long and healthy lives. PFI provides factual information about pet food and treat safety nutrition and health to pet owners, and advocates for a transparent, science-based regulatory environment for our members.
