“Never stop learning, never stop reading. This helps keep me sharp… so I can show up as the expert, even when I'm talking to people who may very well know more than me.”

What's the coolest project you've worked on at Booz Allen? Recreation.gov is by far the coolest and also the most challenging software development project of my Booz Allen career. Although we kicked the project off in 2017, I started working on the capture about 5 years before the win. When we started working on the capture, no one, even our own team, believed that we would unseat a commercial travel giant and win the job. But we did! The recreation.gov project is awesome for two reasons: First, we use the microservices architecture, cloud technology stacks, resilience engineering, and the highest maturity DevOps automation, similar to startups like Spotify, Uber, Netflix, and Amazon. The second and probably more important reason is, once we are done, it has the potential to touch everyone’s life. People will have a good user experience planning their vacations to visit our nation’s assets, like national parks, forests, lakes, and all of the public lands.
What advice would you offer someone looking to grow their career at Booz Allen? Never stop learning, never stop reading. You need to push yourself to read one book per month. I have a book in my bag, a book in my office, and a book in my car. This helps keep me sharp on new technologies, so I can show up as the expert—even when I’m talking to people who know more than me.
