I can see first-hand the difference I am making
Working at DED, I know I am making an impact on my children’s futures and the lives of all Missourians. As a project manager, I get to work directly with our partners every day to help improve local economies through business and community development projects. Through these projects, I can see first-hand the difference I am making in our communities to enhance the quality of life for all.
