Console controller.

She achieved several major milestones in 2017, including the certification and accreditation of the overall federal dashboard and two releases of the agency-level dashboard with increasing functionality. She also established data exchanges between several agency dashboards and the federal one. Her colleagues say those activities required close attention to detail, clear communication with a variety of internal and external stakeholders, a sense of humor and a firm commitment to getting the dashboards released despite challenges along the way.
