I like that I have a voice to implement change. Shortly after starting, I was able to get involved in ManTech’s DEI initiatives, which is an extremely important area for me.

What is or has been the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

I once had a job as a technical trainer where I traveled the world and assisted with system installations at embassies and consulates worldwide. It took me to many countries across Africa, Europe and Asia that I would not have experienced on my own. It also sparked my interest in personal travel overseas.

My mom is my superhero. As a single mom of 3, she worked her way up from a file clerk to a Senior Vice President at her company over the span of 40 years. She is an amazing example of persistence, hard work and resilience.

What is the coolest thing about what you’re working on now? 

The coolest thing about my job now is my team. I work with some really great people who work hard and like to have fun. It’s the best of both worlds.
