Ten of those years were spent at a Fortune 500 defense contractor where she held various roles from Lead Planner on a $440 million dollar defense program to Program Manager. Government audits are a regular part of managing a defense contract, and Eve has proven herself through numerous reviews conducted by the Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) including Integrated Baseline Reviews (IBR) and three company-wide Earned Value Management System (EVMS) audits. During the last two EVMS audits, Eve led the effort to ensure Planning compliance across the organization. In all reviews, the quality of her work product was proven and received the highest praise.
