Talk about doing more with less. Daisy Bhagowalia developed and implemented a program that is essential to the government’s online operations but costs it precisely zero.

The program has been secured and encrypted and has had no data loss, security breach or outage since she’s managed it, with a staff of just six. That reliability was the primary  reason the federal, state, local and tribal government community committed to the Web as its main means of communication and outreach.
