From Sacramento, CA

"I currently serve as a Networks and Communications competency supervisor for employees located within the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV).  These employees have challenging positions like supporting the Program Executive Office and Program Management Office, giving IPTs valuable insight for execution and ensuring the warfighter receives the best possible outcome, despite each challenge the program may face.

I also serve as the Quantico facility manager, supporting the office end-to-end services and its staff.  We are currently working on the finishing touches of the facility, which include rack power distribution services, end-user networks, and enablement of the classified lab."

"I work with the performance, operations, and engineering teams on the Navy Personnel and Pay (NP2) project to ensure the application meets the sailor's needs. Additionally, I build prototypes that explore the potential of spatial computing and machine learning to discover innovative ways to leverage them for the sailor. I really enjoy working with brilliant people and cutting-edge technology to solve sailor problems, and sharing my passion for technology by mentoring new professionals and summer interns and giving them opportunities to experience what's possible."
