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.
Chief Management Officer (CMO)
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 joined MPS looking for a small company dedicated to public service and its own employees’ professional development. MPS embodies those commitments. I’ve had the pleasure of growing with MPS by working with some truly outstanding colleagues and leaders, all while contributing to our mission of empowering both government and nonprofit clients to better serve their own organizations and stakeholders.
Human Capital Officer, Community Engagement Manager, Operations
Living across the country in California, with no background in government support, my employment with MPS was as much luck as it was timing. During a break in employment, I started with MPS as an independent contractor supporting recruiting efforts while I looked for a full-time role that would be “challenging and fulfilling.” After two months of part-time support I was offered the opportunity to join the team full time, and from there I’ve been granted the latitude to create a unique space with as much “challenge” and “fulfillment” as I could want. (And then some!)
My role is in service of pro bono community engagement, human capital development and recruiting. My direction is to make the company better, and to support my coworkers however I can. I’ve had the pleasure of working with candidates, new hires and employees to find the right role, the right contract, and the right professional opportunities to inspire longevity within our organization. We focus on hiring people who are kind and action oriented, and in that way we foster an environment with excellent people creating incredible results.
