Angela Weaver ('13) | Policy and Strategy in National Security | Washington, D.C.

Hi! My name is Angela Weaver and I am a 2013 graduate of Wake Forest with a BA in History. I left graduation day and the following Monday began my career in Washington, DC! While my career has led me to many different places and experiences, my focus from the beginning has been on nuclear weapons policy and strategy. I have worked in the think tank community, in defense industry, and as a contractor for the Department of Defense. I am currently in the Pentagon working for the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear Matters.

While my passion and background are in the nuclear weapons world, I have deep experience with the broader national security community and have spent the last 8 years working in parternship with all areas of government. I have been fortunate enough to have wonderful mentors throughout my career and I am happy to be able to pay it forward. I look forward to getting to know you, your goals, and your passions and seeing how I can help you succeed in this fast-paced, exciting town. From navigating the transition from intern to full-time, to planning your career 5-10 years in the future, to tips on where to explore in and around DC – no question is too small. I look forward to meeting you!
