About me.

My path into the government workforce was a winding one through graduate school, teaching, and both small and large consulting firms before landing my first jobs with the federal government. With nearly a decade of government experience, I’ve worked in a range of agencies with missions of defense, health, and innovation. I’ve been through the highs and lows of landing the first job, transitioning to new agencies, working towards promotions, and even questioning whether this career is really what I want to keep doing.

Our goal at Fedability is to provide you the tools, tips, and insights to be more effective, have a larger impact, and build the relationships you need to be successful in the government.

My mission is to help people think about work differently.

I have spent nearly a decade working in the federal government. Starting off as a GS-9, I have steadily moved into the senior ranks. Over the years, I have worked in employee engagement, leadership and employee development, and team performance building. I haven’t always worked for the government though! I’ve also been an instructor, a researcher, and a consultant. I received my Ph.D. in Industrial Organizational Psychology in 2009 from University of Central Florida. Outside of work, I am an avid sailor!
