My career with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) started in 2003, as a Civil Engineer in Warwick, Rhode Island. Since then, I have worked at the NRCS-Florida State Office in Gainesville, as Agricultural Engineer- Irrigation Specialist and Mobile Irrigation Lab Team Leader. I then returned to the NRCS-Rhode Island State Office as Assistant State Conservation Engineer. In 2012, I went to New Hampshire as State Conservation Engineer on the Leadership Team. Always having a strong interest in operations and the budget, I changed directions in my career and became the Assistant State Conservationist – Management & Strategy in New Hampshire in late 2014. In 2019, I was selected for a long-term detail assignment/temporary promotion as a Management Analyst with NHQ-Office of the Regional Conservationists, focused on workload analysis. Most recently, I was selected for a term position, as Management Analyst with NHQ- Policy and Program Analysis Division, Management & Strategy Deputy Area, serving as the team leader for the Workload Analysis Team.
