    I believe that every successful project requires someone with both the technical skills to manage complex execution and the soft skills to manage a diverse set of stakeholders. My education and career have taught me not only statistical analysis, computer programing, and user research, but also fearlessness in the face of bureaucracy and how to mentor those I manage to reach their peak performance. From an academic laboratory to an Army field test, I am comfortable translating real-world problems into actionable projects and empowering a team to create change. Whether I’m mentoring high school students, coordinating with an engineering team, or briefing senior leadership, I know how to make sure results are delivered with maximum impact.
