Charlotte Peyser, ASSOCIATE

As an associate with HCM’s higher education team, Charlotte provides strategic support to multiple clients, including the Gates Foundation, Lumina Foundation and USA Funds.

Extensive experience working with high school students sparked Charlotte’s initial, early interest in education policy. After earning her degree in English Literature, Charlotte served as a tutor and college counseling administrative assistant for Match Charter Public High School in Boston, MA.  At Match, Charlotte oversaw the ninth-grade tutorial groups, co-taught weekly college seminars for seniors, and guided students through the college application process.

Prior to joining HCM, Charlotte served as the public affairs manager for New Balance Athletics, Inc. In this position, Charlotte was responsible for tracking legislation, upholding relationships with Congressional allies, and acting as the face of the company in government related initiatives.

Charlotte holds a bachelor’s degree in English Literature, Magna Cum Laude from Connecticut College.

She enjoys singing, running and exploring her new home city of Washington D.C.


Each day I keep in mind the experiences of my former students, classmates and educators who shaped the way I think about education policy in this country. I value the opportunities I have to work with policymakers, administrators and thought leaders who are equally passionate in working toward providing equitable educational opportunities in elementary, secondary and higher education, especially for those students who are historically “underserved.”
