Below details each individual CFFS employee who received a NIH STOPS service award.
Carol Bryant – Management Analyst for National Cancer Institute (NCI), Center for Cancer Research. Carol began as an Operations Coordinator in 2015 and promoted to Management Analyst in 2019. Carol was asked about her fondest memory over the past five years. Carol said, “formal recognition for making a difference in timely patient care was unexpected, but most exhilarating; I couldn’t be surrounded by a more dedicated team of professionals.”
Julia Ochoa – Operations Coordinator for National Cancer Institute (NCI), Office of Advocacy Relations. Julia was among the first NIH STOPS contractors hired by CFFS.
Nekesha Rowlett-Thomas – Meeting Coordinator for National Cancer Institute (NCI), Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis. Nekesa was among the first NIH STOPS contractors hired by CFFS. Nekesha recently said, “As a Meeting Coordinator with the Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine, I have most enjoyed the never-ending opportunities to meet doctors from around the world. I have assisted doctors in traveling to and from India, China, Canada, Israel, and Uzbekistan, to name a few. The doctors that visit from abroad are working to strengthen medical study collaborations with the United States. I am happy to be involved in such important research work.”
Christine Baker – Property Accountability Manager for National Eye Institute (NEI). Christine stated, “Over the past several years, I have accomplished an excellent working relationship with my POC at NEI. My greatest accomplishment is developing and maintaining a system to track all software and hardware support renewals for the ITMB and other various labs within NIH. My position is challenging however, also rewarding as it allows me to interact with other employees at NEI.”
Quentin Ivey – Property Technician for National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD). Quentin received the ten year service award. Quentin notably transitioned from our prime contractor, Kelly Government Services, to CFFS in 2017.
