When I thought about starting my career, I knew two things for sure: I wanted to make a difference and I wanted to feel a passion for my work. In college, I took a couple of cyber and technology courses and when I realized how important those fields are to keep the world safe, I wanted to learn more.
After only a few months into my college internship with Booz Allen, I decided that cybersecurity was going to be my focus. That was more than nine years ago. Every day, I get to work with talented people—scientists, architects, security subject matter experts, engineers—to solve really tough problems and help defend some of our nation’s most critical assets.
