While there, she was liable for all complaint intake in the Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. area, staffing command posts for large scale events and operations, and assisting Special Agents with ongoing investigations. In 2015, Nicole joined the FBI Public Affairs team and maintained a close relationship with local, national, and international media outlets by pitching proactive news stories about the FBI while also responding to media inquiries in a timely manner. She also assisted in organizing several on-camera interviews with production companies, revamped internal and external communication outlets, managed the FBI Washington Field Office Twitter account with 72,000 followers, and created Wanted Posters and billboards which aided the Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force in locating several missing children in Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia.

Nicole was responsible for managing a group of 40 SharePoint Content Managers to ensure all websites were maintained properly. In addition, Nicole had daily interaction with executive management to implement a communication strategy for the Directorate. Nicole graduated from James Madison University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Justice Studies. She just bought her first home in Chantilly and is excited to move with her husband and two German Shepherd mix dogs.

Plant The Seed

Crimson Phoenix would like to plant the seed with all of our employees that Nicole Schwab or Gerald Walker will be reaching out in the next few months to retrieve some data from you for our SharePoint site.

Crimson Employee Recognition

Crimson Phoenix loves to recognize their employees. If you are doing a good job, do not be afraid to ask your Program Manager to send an employee recognition to us at https://crimsongovernment.com/for-employees/ . Ask them to nominate you for an Impact Award.

Crimson Phoenix and The Counterintelligence Mission Center’s Intelligence Staff (CIMC/INT) would like to highlight the outstanding support provided by Mr. Allan Moody in supporting the Fall 2019 development and launch of a new format for documenting important data points collected worldwide. Mr. Moody built a creative online interface for this new format, and juggled numerous priorities, such as the need to handle sensitive data, limit access to only certain people, and customize the input fields so that the menus – and the resulting format returned to users – changed based on the user’s selections. His efforts resulted in a user-friendly tool that exceeded all expectations and was launched worldwide ahead of schedule, with practically no hiccups. Mr. Moody’s work demonstrates expertise, dedication to mission, creativity, and collaboration that made possible the quick launch of this initiative less than six months from concept to worldwide roll out, with Mr. Moody’s involvement only starting several months into the process. None of this would have been possible without his hard work, dedication, and flexibility. IMC/INT appreciates Mr. Moody’s assistance, and patient efforts to continue to quickly refine the tool post-launch and looks forward to the next opportunity to collaborate with him on future projects.

We would also like to take the time to congratulate Aaron Guiliano on doing a fantastic job leading his Graphic Design team. In under a year, Aaron has worked himself up to Technical Lead on his program and continues to make an impact daily.

We would also like to take the time to recognize Richard Blake. Richard Blake has gone out of his way to support multiple projects for the betterment of the team. Your attitude and work ethic have been extremely well received!
