Lambert has held additional roles in government at the state and federal levels. 

Lambert spent 10 years in California, before returning home to start a drone business and be with her family after the passing of her oldest brother Ben. With her move, Lambert felt called to return to public service and build on her father, Sen. Lambert’s historic legacy. Sen. Lambert was instrumental in the Innocence Project’s first success in Virginia, and in supporting funding for Virginia’s public schools and HBCUs. “My father was the person who showed me how to bring communities and people together,” Lambert said. “Now is the time to put those lessons into action.”
