She most recently served at Health and Human Services Commission as a Special Advisor to the Deputy Executive Commissioner of the Procurement and Contracting Division participating in a wide range of procurement and contracting improvement projects and other oversight responsibilities including stepping in as the agency's Interim HUB Coordinator while assisting in the search and hire of a new HUB Director. At the Texas Facilities Commission she was the agency's Director of External Affairs and Communication.
