How Leaders Describe a Typical Day at Work

Vice President of Government Relations and Public Affairs ,


I spend time working internally with our teams to figure out what blockers they face in deploying our technology. As our product or engineering teams develop our technology, I seek to understand what they need from government in order to get that technology safely on the roads. Then I work with government to explain our technology and mission, understand their mission, goals, and concerns, and make sure we align for the most impact and benefits.
