I am a senior grants management specialist with the Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition team in the Grants Management Branch (GMB). I am the deputy grants management officer (GMO) for the GMB. I facilitate activities of the chief GMO and other GMB staff by ensuring that the Branch conducts business in an efficient manner. I serve as a contact to internal scientific staff and external grantee institutions for interpretation and implementation of federal regulations and guidelines regarding grants and cooperative agreements. I also assist in overseeing the activities of GMB staff and administrative personnel.
