Principe heads up administration for NSF-DBA’s U.S. operations, an NSF International company with more than 25 years of experience in pharmaceutical and medical device training, auditing and consulting. Additionally, she played a key role in NSF-DBA’s move to its new Boston office, working with IT and managing facility logistics to ensure a smooth transition.

The NSF Green Chemistry team developed a complete educational package for newly certified companies, which improved the quality of first-time client submissions and resulted in increased customer satisfaction. NSF officials said the team serves as an outstanding example of a technical team working together towards a common goal.
