On working at FSG

“I'm at FSG because I find purpose and challenge in every day. In any brainstorming, conversation, or data synthesis, I know that there is an opportunity to move others towards action, and in this process to meet someone's needs. I love to see excitement in the eyes of my colleagues and clients, when together we have found a way to unleash new ideas for progress. FSG helps me celebrate the positive forces in the human spirit; the beauty of nature; the parents, siblings, and teachers who themselves devote their careers to others.”
