Presidential Innovation Fellowship (2014)
The PIF program places technologists within the federal government to tackle some of our nation’s biggest challenges. I primarily worked with Veterans Affairs, increasing transparency through open data, and gathering narratives about our Veterans to improve access to VA services.
Creating a Customer-Centric Analytics Strategy
VA hosted two analytics and user-experience forums to map data-driven observations to VA's Strategic Plan: the Open Data Roundtable and Analytics Powering Outcomes for Veterans, and created the Open Data Findings Report.
VA Open Data Findings Report
Our team heard the stories of over 100 Veterans nationwide and created a report of themes and observations.
