With over 15 years of experience managing projects across non-profit, association, academic and corporate organizations, Gale’s passion has always been to help people solve complex problems. Their Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is a product of a career spent in the trenches and filled with valuable lessons learned from overseeing projects within the healthcare, STEM, education, and technology sectors. Gale also has a knack for strategic thinking and business optimization, leading them to acquire a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from Kogod School of Business at the American University.
Before joining Fíonta, Gale served as the Director of Council on Residency Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) where they managed a portfolio of projects and products that improved residency education in ob-gyn. They hold a Bachelor of Arts in Government and International Relations from George Mason University. Gale speaks English, Russian, and Uzbek languages and hopes to add a few more in the coming years to this list.
Outside of work, they enjoy trying out new restaurants (foodie at heart), hiking local trails with their partner and dogs, cheering for the Orioles and Washington Spirit, and planning their next travel adventure.
