Describe your current position:
I am a contract specialist and contracting officer for RCO-Fort Wainwright where I procure supplies and services in support of the Installation Management Command mission as well as for U.S. Army Alaska.
Describe your passion for the job:
I love the diversity of responsibilities that the contracting field offers. One of the things I've enjoyed about moving around is that I get a new job every few years. In the contracting field, I don't need to change what I do because you are always learning.
Where do you call home? Tell us about your family.
Home is wherever my immediate family resides. So right now, Alaska is home. My husband and I will be married 27 years this summer. I have two sons and two grandchildren. In my spare time, I like to read and sing. Right now, I am blessed to have my granddaughter living with us so I enjoy spending time with her.
How does your job support the Soldier?
My job ensures that war fighters have what they need to perform the mission. Whether it is a service or supplies, my colleagues and I will find what is required on time and at the best value to the government.
What would you like others to know about you?
I am retired from the U.S. Air Force where I served for 24 years (nine years active, the rest in the Reserve Component). I began my contracting career with the U.S. Navy and have since worked in support of all the branches of service at one point or another.
