She continued in the Senate with a position on the United States Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry (Agriculture Committee). She began her tenure on the Agriculture Committee as a prestigious, competitively-awarded American Association for the Advancement of Science congressional science fellow and quickly became a permanent staffer, advancing to Deputy Staff Director of the Agriculture Committee. As Deputy Staff Director, Ms. Fox assisted in Committee management, including overseeing staff and working on legislation, and she managed federal nominations under the Agriculture Committee's jurisdiction.
Ms. Fox received her S.B. in Economics, with a minor in Russian Language, from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
