Havilah Wingfield is a visiting fellow at Independent Women’s Forum. In addition to joining the fellowship team at IWF, Havilah is also a fellow with Health Reformers Academy, studying healthcare reform from a center-right position. Passionate for promoting sensible solutions, she has campaigned with the Virginia Republican Party on behalf of Congresswoman-elect Jen Kiggans and has been a legislative intern for VA Delegate Anne Ferrell Tata.
Havilah is pursuing a master’s degree in government policy from Regent University. As part of her studies, she has extensively researched and written on policy protections for transgender youth and human-animal chimeras (creatures made by combining both human and animal cells).
Havilah’s patchwork of non-policy experience includes homeschooling her two children, teaching yoga, photographing weddings, acting, and scriptwriting, being a professional artist, and exploring the art of drinking tea. In 2020, she was awarded a grant through the Arts Council of the Valley to make a show of oil paintings illustrating local songbirds and their songs. She lives in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
