Briefly, I have been at NARA since 2000 and on the records management policy team since 2006. My work has always been focused on writing policies and guidance to help agencies improve their records management practices. The Managing Government Records Directive provides a very clear framework guiding this work as we move forward.

I’ve always viewed Records Express as critical to our success in communicating with our stakeholders. We welcome comments and discussion on all of our posts.

I started as an intern at NARA in the summer of 2007 and joined NARA full-time in 2008. As a member of the records management policy team, we have produced guidance on managing email records with the Capstone approach, cloud computing, email archiving applications, and managing electronic messages. The Managing Government Records Directive has directed our work over the past few years as we move toward electronic recordkeeping in the federal government. We encourage discussion on Records Express as we share updates on our work, draft policies, and events within the Office of the Chief Records Officer.
