I like to take on tough challenges—things that have never been done before—and not only meet the desired outcomes, but surpass them.
That’s what has motivated me throughout my career.
During 25 years at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), I created enterprise-level information systems that the agency still uses. I undertook the largest IT reorganization in government history, architecting the VA’s Office of Information and Technology and moving over 7,000 employees into the chief information officer’s purview.
I also created a national data center program that included the resiliencies that kept the information systems at New York and New Jersey VA hospitals running on and after September 11, 2001.
At Booz Allen, I work to transform how the nation provides health services to its veterans. My dad served in World War II, and after all veterans have done for us I’m passionate about serving them.
