Krista Kinnard

Federal Leadership

Krista Kinnard may be new to NASA — she joined this past September — but she’s far from new to helping the federal government adopt new technology. Kinnard came to the space agency from the Department of Labor, where she was the director of innovation and engineering. There, she led efforts to deploy automated tools to improve efficiency and better procurement processes, ultimately winning a Service to America Medal. “It starts with responsibility – engaging with people and understanding what it is their challenge is before bringing technology to the table, and ensuring that the technology is solving the problem,” she said last year.
