Rock Star Q & A: 
Jaime Ian Daley, MPA '07 
Assistant Director
Office of Counter Terrorism
NYS Division of Homeland Security
and Emergency Services

Q: If you had to condense your job description into an elevator pitch, how would it read?

A: I manage a group of intelligence analysts who focus on terrorism and other homeland security issues that face New York State.

Q: How did Rockefeller College prepare you for your career?

A: The homeland security content-specific courses aside, I think the general coursework in the MPA program is extremely helpful, especially as you grow through the management ranks. You definitely appreciate those courses more after the fact!
