Christy Veeder, Ph.D.

National Program Director

Christy Veeder, PhD, serves as the National Program Director at Jobs to Move America where she is leading research on the ways in which public spending can maximize civic benefits.

Prior to joining JMA, Dr. Veeder developed expertise on a range of climate-related issues as a doctoral fellow at Columbia University and NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Her research on atmospheric science combined with her interest in meaningful policy solutions led her to become the 2016-2017 American Meteorological Society Congressional Policy Fellow, an opportunity that allowed her to work on environmental and energy policy, labor relations, and industrial manufacturing issues in the US Senate.

Dr. Veeder’s work at JMA focuses on increasing support for policies and practices that can strengthen American infrastructure and increase access to high-road job opportunities while improving environmental quality and long-term climate health.
