Ms. Carey, with more than 25 years in the nonprofit, public and private sector, was recognized for her work championing strategic communications and integrated marketing as part of wider modernization and transformation efforts at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Ms. Carey’s ongoing contributions serving VBA as a senior advisor through the Office of Strategic Engagement were cited as instrumental for the strategic planning, tactical execution, and technical evaluation of outreach campaigns. DIS Chief Executive Officer JD Sullivan remarked on Carey’s profound dedication to the Veteran community, stating, “Nicole has been a visionary thought leader in strategic communication within VA and VBA over the last decade. Her innovative ideas and pioneering methods truly embody the DIS spirit of ingenuity and creativity.” Ms. Carey’s colleagues went on to describe her as a “unicorn” who is exceptional at “driving change because she is unafraid to challenge conventional norms to deliver uniquely tailored communication and marketing solutions.” 

Having received this most prestigious award given to federal community leaders, Ms. Carey will be featured in FCW Magazine in the coming months and honored at the Fed 100 Gala on August 27, 2021. Ms. Carey added, “It’s an honor to be on this list with such a talented and accomplished group of individuals. What I am most grateful for is the opportunity to collaborate with extraordinary people every day and work on projects that bring innovation to how government integrates people, processes, and technology to improve access to benefits and services and transform lives.”
