Headed up the development of computer systems and processes to improve the flow of academic and testing data from hundreds of colleges, national testing services, and military training programs into centralized degree completion plans. This centralized data is used to guarantee transferability of credit so that Service members do not need to repeat coursework and thereby are able to graduate more expeditiously from college. This saves the students and the government millions of hours and dollars in completing their degrees, enabling students to graduate in a timely fashion and have a more immediate impact on their Service and upon society and the nation.
