President and CEO
I like organizations, how they work, how they are designed, and how people are empowered within them. Government organizations and nonprofits are particularly fascinating with their roots in service. From Peace Corps Volunteer, to Civil Servant at USDA and USDOJ, to working with governments in Asia and the Middle East, and two years as COO and CEO for the DC chapter of the Project Management Institute, public service has been my mission. At MPS we focus on Organizational Change to bring about more effective service delivery in the Federal Government and NGOs. It is gratifying to see the great work our team does, and the results they yield.
Vice President of Administration / Human Resources Director
Coming from a large organization, I joined MPS curious to test the small business environment, specifically the ability to influence and develop both corporate operations and my own delivery to our clients. Immediately I was impressed with the encouragement and autonomy to put your hand up and immerse yourself in management and corporate opportunities. The realization of my own motivation and capacity intersecting with opportunity provides a work context that leads to an immediate and tangible impact on the company, my clients and the public service. I believe this frontline service to our government clients and opportunities in corporate operations is unique to a small business, and one that genuinely values employee development.
VA Account Manager
I was introduced to MPS years ago, when I was working as a contracting partner with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), working closely with MPS consultants. I was consistently impressed with the talent, work ethic, and business savvy of the MPS team, which had deservedly earned the spot as the client’s “go-to”. I am thrilled to be part of an organization that shares my values, invests in its people through continuous development and learning, and supports public service.
Community Engagement Manager
MPS allows me to build on the history of public service I established while serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Swaziland. At MPS, I’ve been able to apply my existing skills and hone new ones in service of various nonprofit organizations and pro-bono clients. My mission and passion is to improve the way nonprofits serve their clients, and MPS allows me to work on that goal every day.
