Booz Allen has a deep history in space solutions. The firm’s work includes over 30 years of multifaceted support for the International Space Station, modernization of NASA’s infrastructure and policies, engineering and analysis for the Artemis mission, and the Cybersecurity and Privacy Enterprise Solutions and Services (CyPrESS) contract—the first time NASA has united cybersecurity for IT, operational technology, and mission systems under one contract.
Women have played an increasingly vital role along the way.
“The space industry has changed over the last 20 years, with more and more women in the mix and leading the industry,” says Vice President Karen Fields, who’s the market lead for Booz Allen’s work with NASA.
“It’s both fun and gratifying to be part of the future,” says System Engineer Nicole Loomis, who’s Booz Allen’s chief engineer for the NASA Human Space Flight Communications and Tracking Network.
“This is a great moment for anyone to pursue a career in space,” says Vice President Ginny Cevasco, who oversees systems delivery contracts for space ground processing and space situational awareness. “Our progress is rapidly accelerating, and there are so many opportunities to have impactful and meaningful roles.”
In conjunction with Women’s History Month, Karen, Nicole, Ginny, Lead Associate Casey Theisen, and Communications Strategist Toni Eberhart share their stories, insights, and advice.
