Focused on growing Sequoia services, Susan looks for opportunities to work with prime contractors or lead solutions that showcase Sequoia’s talent and experience.  She knows that as a small business Sequoia doesn’t have all of the solutions, and so she is always interested in working with team members to develop the complete solutions to the Government’s problems.

Innovation Focused

We lead technology innovation in the National Sector sector, but also explore and innovate internally. Sometime this results in successful commercial products like Sequoia Combine. Sometimes it just leaves us as better technologists. But innovation is what we do.
