Where do you see Lafayette Group in its next 25 years? I would hope to see Lafayette Group stay true to its brand as a leader in ensuring the safety, security, and effectiveness of the Nation’s homeland security and public safety departments and agencies. I would hope that our workforce continues to grow in its creativity and diversity, and staff are excited and motivated by the importance of our work. From a growth perspective, I would hope to see the company harness the uniqueness in our thinking and approach to client service to be a resource for many other departments and agencies across the nation.
What has been the most fulfilling program or project that you have worked on? Leading a team of consultants across Texas, Mississippi, Alabama, and New Orleans, LA for emergency communications response and recovery efforts post Hurricane Katrina. I have found there is no better way to build a true understanding of the mission and importance of your work than working alongside the federal, state, and local agencies involved in such a major event.
