DSFederal's CEO Sophia Parker Receives Recognition for FDA Small Business Fair Presentation

Updated: Dec 9, 2019


The FDA Office of Acquisitions and Grants Services (OAGS) recognized CEO Sophia Parker for presenting at the 2019 FDA Small Business Fair in March. At the event, she shared DSFederal’s history, mission and milestones, including the company’s growth from a tiny group of professionals in 2007 to a 180-person firm with over 30 clients, including FDA.


Sophia was selected by FDA OAGS in March to share her story during the event’s Speaker’s Series. While she shared DSFederal’s story of growth and success, she also empowered fellow business leaders with tangible advice for growing successful businesses.


“Do your homework, be patient and when in doubt, ask,” were a few of the gems she shared at the event, which brought together FDA contracting staff, program managers, and small and large business representatives. Following the presentations, business representatives met with FDA staff to discuss upcoming requirements and partnering opportunities.

Congratulations, Sophia, for this special recognition! Thank you for continuing to share your wisdom and our mission with the business community.
