The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any person, firm, and organization can receive for making a significant contribution to increasing U.S. exports.

Contributing to this work is exciting, especially in our customer-facing roles as communicators. We both are energized by the ideas we learn about (and write about) from our interactions with people from many sectors and states.

Whether it involves government innovation or environmental studies, I know that data science is frequently a key ingredient for finding the best solutions. I encourage others to consider the value of public service; to find a mission which speaks to their passions; and to help address challenges affecting people across the nation or even in our local communities.

Currently, I serve as a supervisor to a stellar group of civil servants who bring a wealth of experience and expertise from both the private and non-profit sectors. Like me, they are all dedicated to the Department of Commerce’s efforts to expand broadband availability throughout the nation, especially in rural areas.

Of all the different jobs I’ve held, my current position at EDA has had the most potential for transformation and helping people. My job at EDA has allowed me to improve how federal resources are made available,  enhancing their overall impact through interagency collaboration and co-investment.
