Seems like she’s an intelligence community type, basically the future of the NNSA and DOE.

Solid choice. I knew her in the 1990s when she was a UC employee at LLNL, before she took an assignment at DOE HQ and ultimately switched to federal DOE status. She really helped grow the Nuclear Incident Response Program within DOE and DOD. She worked nuclear weapons counter-terrorism programs in the Clinton, Bush, and Obama administrations. She was on duty in the White House Situation Room on 9/11 and stayed there during the attacks. She's not a weapons scientist, but definitely understands all the little technical/engineering details on how they work.

At the nuclear weapon labs, the designer is King. But, at the Forrestal Building, it's the Fed who rules. After all, those designers are "just contractors."
