Can you tell us about your journey?

“During my freshman year of college, my career plans were suddenly in jeopardy when I found out I was expecting at 19. While my fellow freshmen were busy gaining their freshman 15, I was trying to figure out how I would balance motherhood and three more years of college. This little human and I would figure it out together.

What gave me the courage to make this choice was the support system I had around me. Without the support of my family and friends, this moment in my life could have easily been a career ending one instead of an opportunity to learn. I take this mindset into the workplace today where I believe we should give young leaders a safe place to make mistakes and empower them to use experiences as teachable moments that will grow them into better leaders in the future.

Today that little human is a smart and beautiful 11-year-old who wants to work for Lockheed Martin like her mama!”
