Sha is the COO and a co-founder of Nava, a public benefit corporation formed during efforts to help fix HealthCare.gov.

Pairing a strong service design and user research centered approach with rigorous experience in building scalable and resilient public infrastructure, Nava has helped tens of millions of people enroll in and manage their benefits, streamlined processes to save decades of labour years, and saved government agencies hundreds of millions of dollars.
