I’m a people person at heart. I like connecting with people. In my work, that means preparing sailors and Marines for the long haul—including months in submarines. The more we can get them differentiated capabilities, the more efficient, effective, and safer they are in conducting their missions.
Connecting with people also fuels my volunteer work with the Special Olympics. There are no strangers in my life. I think that’s what has made me successful.

Why are you passionate about the work that you do at Booz Allen? We’re enabling the warfighter, which enables our international security. Our programs are sometimes high profile, but it’s always about the safety and security of our nation.
What excites you about defense and intelligence? I get to know our military men and women and the sacrifices they’re making. We support what they need to do their jobs. That’s what gets me excited.
How do you help the Navy and Marines prepare for the future? It’s actually a complex process. In a submarine, you have to be self-sustaining. We help them prepare by making sure the right assets, the right training, and the right kind of crews are available to sustain them during their mission.
Why did you choose Booz Allen? I can create my own path here. The firm helped me pursue my passions and then recognized me for my leadership skills.
What are the pressing needs for your clients? Cyber remains a pressing need. In addition, our clients need funding to build and field the right capabilities for this changing environment and changing threats. Recruiting, training, and sustaining our military in the workforce is another pressing need.
How did you get involved with Special Olympics? Booz Allen has a 30-year relationship with the Special Olympics. With our unified approach, a school’s athletes are paired with Special Olympic athletes. It fosters a culture of respect for those that are different. And it creates a school conscience.
How do you connect with your people? Learn to say, “Hello. Good morning.” You need to interface with your people. Then reward effort and success.
What is the best piece of business advice that you’ve gotten in your career? Work through others. You don’t need to have all the answers. But you do need to figure out who can support you.
What were you like in high school? I was outgoing and involved in many sports and activities. I like people!
What was your first job? In college, I worked for the Department of Transportation as a civil engineering intern one summer. I measured how much asphalt was taken off highways by pavement-plating machines. All summer, I walked along highways throughout the country, getting beeped at by passing cars.
What advice would you give yourself as a young professional? You really have to take charge and manage your career. Know where you’re heading.
What are you nostalgic for? I’m nostalgic for people spending more time face-to-face over a meal or at least on the phone, talking to one another. I like one-on-one communication.
What has surprised you most about your own life? Being where I’m at. I grew up in a family of eight kids. My parents didn’t go to college. I’m pleased that I can be in this position, as a successful woman in a military environment. I’m proud of the work we do.
