    Combs also served as Chief Financial Officer at the Environmental Protection Agency and held Assistant Secretary or equivalent Chief Operating Officer positions at the Departments of Transportation, Treasury, Veterans Affairs and Education.


    In the private sector, Combs founded three successful companies and took their products to worldwide distribution. She also held management positions, with significant profit and loss responsibilities, at a large Southeastern bank.

    Combs received her doctorate from Virginia Tech. She received an undergraduate and a master's degree from Appalachian State University and is a graduate of the Program for Senior Managers at Harvard University.
