Tiffany A. Blanchard-Case has been selected as the recipient of the 2013 Linton Brooks Medal for Dedication to Public Service. She was recognized yesterday for her outstanding service to NNSA and the American people. Former NNSA Administrator Linton Brooks and Acting NNSA Administrator Bruce Held presented the medal to Tiffany.
Tiffany has served with distinction within the NNSA’s Office of Global Threat Reduction. She has led efforts within the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus to secure and remove vulnerable radioactive sources. She has spearheaded projects to improve transportation security and regulations on radioactive source security. Her efforts resulted in the recovery and disposition of thousands of radioactive sources representing the equivalent of more than 5,000 dirty bombs thus, making the United States and the international community safer from terrorism. Her dedication, creativity, and innovative spirit have helped to overcome technical and bureaucratic obstacles and furthered the success of the NNSA’s nonproliferation programs.
Prior to her current position, Tiffany worked within the Office of Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation as part of the Nonproliferation Graduate Fellowship Program. Prior to her employment with the U.S. Department of Energy, Tiffany worked in the United States Congress, serving in the office of a legislator in both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
Tiffany holds a Master of Science in Foreign Service degree from Georgetown University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Spanish Translation from Kent State University.
