img_0495Miriam McNabb, CEO 

As a Contributing Editor for DRONELIFE, Miriam developed a passionate enthusiasm for the drone industry and the benefits that drone technology offers across a wide range of industries.  She has a deep understanding of federal drone regulations and the evolving drone business.  Miriam believes that drones are a major disruptive technology that will change our lives for the better – performing many commercial tasks better, cheaper, and safer than manned aircraft can and offering a tremendous humanitarian impact in search and rescue, disaster recovery, firefighting, and other applications.

Miriam has over 20 years of experience in sales and marketing, working as the VP of Sales and Marketing for financial market technology companies and consulting firms, and in a variety of roles at larger technology firms like Advent Software.

chanceChance, Official Mascot

Chance is a 3 year old rescue dog of uncertain lineage but tremendous character and good looks.  He provides encouragement, exercise and vociferous security for the JobForDrones team and our offices on the beautiful Nashua River.  He also puts up with drones in his office dog bed and (almost) never chews propellers.
