ON WHAT SHE LIKES ABOUT BEING PART OF THE ARMY CYBER AND 1ST IO TEAM:

“Since joining the 1st IO Command team in 2005, I have continuously been reminded of how much this organization cares about the people who serve this mission. The mission has grown and evolved and as a result, I have grown as well, both personally and professionally. It is great to be a part team that grows and evolves together, despite challenges.”

ON SHOW SHE FEELS HER EXPERIENCE WITH ARMY CYBER AND 1ST IO HAS HELPED BUILD HER THE SKILLS THAT HELPED HER EARN THE MATLACK AWARD:

“1st IO Command and the AIOC (Army Information Operations Center) have always been recognized as one of very few organizations providing intelligence support to Information Operations. The unique capabilities and experience within this command and the Army IO Center have led to our inclusion in some of the most critical operations in recent years. The pace of operations and dynamic requirements has helped the command maintain expertise and agility. The quality of the analysts and planners within the AIOC has led CENTCOM and ARCYBER to continue to request our support during critical times.”

ON WHAT SHE HAS FOUND FULFILLING AND CHALLENGING ABOUT WORKING WITH ARMY CYBER AND 1ST IO:

“I have found being a part of 1st IO Command to be most rewarding over the last few years, as more and more operators are gaining an appreciation for and understanding of the role of non-lethal fires. Some of this has come as a result of broader understanding of misinformation and disinformation, but seeing more people develop greater understanding of influence and potential to drive operations has been very rewarding.”
