A Note From Your Instructor, Love... 

Thanks for joining me in my quest to improve the lives of feds and take the guesswork out of the bureaucracy.

I've spent 20 years working in federal government and had great mentors and teachers along the way. I hope to pass on what I've learned so you can focus your attention on the mission - not the process.

I've supervised civilians, military and contractors, and hold two masters degrees - public administration and Defense Resource Strategy.

I served as a trainer for the Executive Leadership Development Program, a Department of Defense program for GS-13-15s, focusing on self-awareness, team-building, communication, leadership and organization.

I started my federal government career as a GS-7 right out of college, and became a GS-15 by age 28.
