DSFederal is very pleased to announce Stefani Olsen's promotion to the newly created position of Vice President, IT Services. Stef joined DSFederal in 2013, as Director of Health Programs. In this role, she provided program management oversight for our contracts with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), and the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). With extensive experience supporting HHS Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) contracts, she was instrumental in DSFederal’s HRSA IDIQ win, and has successfully managed several tasks under that IDIQ, including the Mother and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) Healthy Start Medical Evaluation Database (HSMED), the National Survey of Children’s Health (NSCH) redesign, and the HIV/AIDS Bureau (HAB) ADAP Data Reporting System.
Stefani earned a degree in Journalism from The George Washington University, and as a student, she considered a career in politics. Although her career focus shifted to technical and program management, her desire to participate in public service remained. As a successful program manager with several large government contractors, Stefani decided to join DSFederal because small companies “tend to be customer-focused,” rather than “bottom-line driven.” “But the kicker,” she said, “is that DSFederal reinvests its profits in charity work,” through the IDEA Foundation. Like many other DSFederal employees, Stefani was attracted to DSFederal by the combination of innovative projects, people-focused Government missions, and the company’s dedication to giving back.
In four years at DSFederal, Stefani has achieved a notable record of success. She describes the HRSA IDIQ as her proudest accomplishment and best memory at DSFederal. “I love the mission of HRSA,” she explains, emphasizing its focus on ensuring health equity, and providing quality healthcare to the vulnerable and underserved. As for worst DSFederal memories, only one came to mind: “When I go to the kitchen and there’s no coffee!” Stef is excited about her new, expanded role at DSFederal; and we are proud to recognize her as a leader in our company.
