As the Project Manager for Strategic Initiatives, Ryan works at the intersection of economic/community development, public policy, process improvement and innovation to help City of Hartford departments design initiatives and secure grant funds for implementation. Previously, Ryan spent nearly a decade advocating for startups, non-profits, and a research university to structure and fund programs and projects – in roles that interfaced directly with U.S. Senators and Members of Congress, their staff, and other state and federal leaders.
