Your Speaker: Owen Highfill, Federal Housing Finance Agency Email Address:<> Phone Number: 202-353-1537

Owen Highfill received her BA from James Madison University in 2006 and her MA from the University of Georgia in 2008, both in English Literature. After graduate school, she was accepted into the Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program and began working for the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) in Washington, DC on July 21, 2008, as a planning analyst on the performance and planning team. Nine days later, President Bush signed the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, which created the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) by combining the staffs of OFHEO, the Federal Housing Finance Board, and a mission office of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. As a planning analyst, she helped create FHFA’s first planning and performance documents, including the Agency Strategic Plan, the annual Agency Performance Plan, and the Performance and Accountability Report. During her fellowship, she also completed several internal rotations in FHFA’s mission offices and was able to see first-hand how FHFA regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) and the 12 Federal Home Loan Banks. Furthermore, as a PMF she also spent six months working at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as a management analyst within the Office of Financial Management, Office of the Director. At the conclusion of her fellowship in July 2010, she accepted a position in FHFA’s Office of Conservatorship Operations (OCO) as a conservatorship operations specialist.
