Yvette Baleta-Nackerdien

Project Manager


After joining the organization in 2018 as an executive assistant to senior vice presidents, I've transitioned to a Project Manager role. My focus is driving projects forward by managing project plans, objectives, and deliverables and working with stakeholders and project leads.

My career has included nine years in the foreign service of South Africa and I was part of the team that established the South African Embassy in Tunisia, North Africa. I later joined the Independent Electoral Commission of South Africa, supporting various Chairpersons and Commissioners over the years. At the IEC, I was involved with International Liaison, local and international Election Observer Accreditation, and special projects.

I live with my husband and three kids in Northern Virginia and I'm based in the Reston office. When not working, I love walking my dogs, gardening, and entertaining friends at home. I hold a Certified Admin Professional certification from IAAP and I'm a member of Toastmasters, improving my public speaking skills.
