Who we are:
Our culture is everything. People come first. Our culture is built around a diverse group of employees empowered to think in different directions, a leadership team who trusts employees to lean-in to unique greatness, and an operations team that deploys programs to support employee well-being and growth – both personally and professionally. This allows us to maintain a roster of experts eager to join our community.
The best people want to go where the best people are.

After nearly two decades in the DoD Consulting industry, Forge’s owner and CEO founded Forge and sought a better way of doing business. She is ingrained in daily staff and client operations and committed to igniting every employee’s potential, growing Forge in sustainable and exciting ways, and making lasting impacts on our clients and communities.
The Forge Leadership Team brings decades of experience providing management and IT consulting services to Federal and Commercial clients. While we advise on multi-million-dollar programs and serve as SMEs on multinational affairs, we also sit down and get to work. There aren’t any egos here. And you can expect just as much from our leadership, as from our staff.
Our streamlined operations framework lets our leadership and practitioners focus on their clients – and lets our clients focus on their agency goals.
At Forge, we seek impact.
Our Goal? Meaningful change that creates a chain reaction for a larger society of humans. As a community of Veterans, commitment to military communities will always be in our corporate DNA. Forge transfers success back to Veterans and their families during critical times of active-duty service, military-to-civilian transitions, and deep into post-service phases of life. We are annual supporters of special programs and charities, as we also continually seek new initiatives to honor the sacrifice of those serving our country. In 2023, Forge's commitment to the military community was recognized as the winner of the Northern VA Chamber of Commerce, Distinguished Service Award for Veteran Owned Business of the Year Award.
Like all things 'Forge', our corporate give-back approach is also employee-driven and individualized. Through our Charity Spotlight Program, employee-nominated charities receive support throughout the year. Our employee-run organizations empower each employee to give back how they can (financially or by volunteering when they can, and to those initiatives that intrinsically motivate them to create change. Our community programs enable us to find common ground, connect, and elevate impact.
