I’m a Marine Corps Veteran, wife, mother to twin boys and I work at Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane. I earned a B.S. in Computer Information Systems and a Masters of Project Management during my 7 years in the Marine Corps where I served as an Aviation Logistics Specialist. At Crane, I’ve been exposed to the inner workings of Product Support, the Systems Engineering and Government Acquisition processes. My skillset has grown tremendously and I’ve had the privilege to work for and amongst some of the most devoted patriots in Indiana who are dedicated to ensuring the Fleet is always ready. There is a lot of responsibility, pride, and fulfillment in the work we do in Maritime Electromagnetic Warfare Systems Division because we have a direct impact on the Sailors, Marines, and Soldiers. I consider myself one of the lucky ones to experience Crane, Indiana.
