The story behind the name.
In 2012, a major derecho raced through the DC area splitting the 300-year old champion white oak tree in Sarah’s front yard. The mighty oak tree survived and thrived, creating the perfect metaphor and inspiration behind the name “SplitOak” Strategies. The white oak, representing wisdom, strength and endurance, split into two major branches, representing the two branches of government and two political parties that Amy and Sarah have worked in and with throughout their careers.
