Describe your current position:
I'm a contracting officer at the Mission and Installation Contracting Command's Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., office. My primary customer is the Training and Doctrine Command. I'm working on a $100 million indefinite delivery indefinite quantity contract for services and supply requirements for the installation's three schools. I also serve as a mentor to my 51C (military contracting) teammates and junior civilian specialists.
Describe your professional/education background:
I'm a graduate of the Army Management Staff College Intermediate Course, Level III certified in contracting and Level I certified in program management. I have a bachelor's degree in computer information systems and I am working on my graduate degree in business administration.
How does your job support the Soldier:
When I was with the Army Corps of Engineers I worked on the Stryker Village Barracks at Fort Campbell, Ky., providing quality housing to Fort Campbell Soldiers. While working for the Army Test Command supporting the Operational Test Command, I worked on requirements that were going to be fielded to Soldiers. I consider it a privilege to work on requirements such as these because they directly support the war fighter, especially since I'm married to one.
Tell us more about yourself:
Fort Leonard Wood is my current home. I'm a proud Army wife to my husband, Staff Sgt. Montrell Marshall. We have two boys - Paul and Jordan. We are currently gearing up for a move to Brussels where I'm hoping to be transferred to the local Expeditionary Contracting Command office. In my spare time I coach soccer and enjoy photography. I'm active in my church where we feed the community on the first Sunday of each month.
