After graduating from Missouri S&T with dual degrees in Engineering Management and Economics, I raised my right hand and joined the Air Force as an Acquisition Officer. I was assigned to Los Angeles Air Force Base and working in developing and procuring Advanced GPS Technologies. I was able to travel the world in this position eventually getting to brief NATO on GPS certification efforts. While in the Air Force, I was selected to complete a master’s degree in Space Systems Operations at the Naval Postgraduate School. After five years in the Air Force, I separated and continued my career in National Security Space Systems. Besides GPS, I’ve worked in a variety of programs that include both Launch Vehicles and major Military Satellite Communications programs. It was during my time on these programs, I grew interested in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence where I then completed a Master of Information and Data Science from UC Berkeley. After honing my technical skills, I’ve now turned to developing my business knowledge to further my positions in leadership. The new Online MBA program has been that perfect program to gain that knowledge. My previous two graduate degrees were conducted by distance learning and the Online MBA by Ross is by far the best and I can highlight those specific reasons if you are interested. I can’t wait to continue through the program and make it to Ross for the residency programs. Go Blue!
