I spent my childhood years in Tennessee and North Georgia. Our family moved to Florida when I was 13, and after some short stays in Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, we finally settled in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Surrounded by Cape Canaveral Space Force, Kennedy Space Center, and Patrick Air Force Base, my love of space and Nasa was born.
Once I graduated high school, I started attending a local community college, where I worked my way through school as a waitress. Working in the service industry turned out to be a rewarding experience as one of my customers recruited me for an open position at Kennedy Space Center under United Technologies. The timing was perfect as they were about to launch STS-1, the first Space Transportation System, later known as the Space Shuttle.
I witnessed the historic first launch and mission in 1981 and was part of the subsequent 48 missions. United Technologies decided to send me north to Connecticut in 1993 to work for Sikorsky Aircraft on the Commanche Helicopter program. After a few long winters in the Northeast, Orlando would be the next place I called home. My top Clifton Strength is connectedness which defines me as having faith in the links among all things and that there are few coincidences. I have never sought any particular job, but I have been given some of the most amazing opportunities and experiences one could hope for.
