Senior Specialist, Enterprise Risk Management. Joe has been fortunate to have many different experiences in the Washington, D.C. area that got him to his current position. He worked as an intern on Capitol Hill and also, at a European think tank while in college at George Mason University. He says the people he has met from all walks of life and backgrounds has been incredible, and has been a huge influence on him.

From there, he entered the nonprofit world, working first for an international development firm and a trade association before landing at the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). His current major project is the implementation of the COSO framework within their organization for the Enterprise Risk program. Professionally, he had the privilege of being in a position of facilitation of communication and projects between numerous private, public, and nonprofit entities.

He feels that a big part of his achievement in his professional career is the work he does with the community, assisting the legal team with pro bono cases with the Washington Legal Clinic, working with the homeless and vulnerable populations in the nation’s capital.
