What She’s Passionate About

Investigating questions related to human performance to identify principles that will help clients address their challenges.

Her Professional Experience

Angie has worked in the human factors field for over 25 years. She started in the nuclear industry at EG&G Rocky Flats, developing job instructional aids and performing safety analyses. She then went to the OECD Halden Reactor Project in Norway, where she conducted human-in-the-loop research to investigate control room design and training system effectiveness. While in Norway, she was a guest lecturer and assistant professor at Østfold College, and taught courses in human-computer interaction (interface design and usability testing). She returned to the U.S. to work at Micro Analysis and Design (later Alion Science and Technology), where she led projects in the aviation, space, rail, and defense industries. These projects have varied in scope and approach, but they have the common theme of using research and analysis to maximize human performance through system design.

All-Time Favorite Quote

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” This quote really speaks to Angie: the message that we have fantastic potential, and can help each other to achieve it.

She’s Not All Business

Angie and her husband, Nils, like to go hiking in the mountains, foothills, and flat paths around the lakes of Colorado. Their kids, Maia and Henning, do not—they prefer to create art and play computer games. The whole family enjoys watching Dr. Who and Big Bang Theory, and they all share a wicked and goofy sense of humor. They also have two cats, Mimi (a brown tabby) and Button (a tuxedo cat), who graciously allow the family to live with them.
