“I live a lifelong strategy of continued education... and plan on obtaining another master's from Florida Tech in operations research. Professionally I've worked as a pilot with FedEx Express in their flight operations division and as a pilot in the U.S. Navy has given me the opportunity to fly a wide range of aircraft. My intense desire and lifelong goal to gain employment at NASA as a pilot with JSC flight operations. There are only a handful of schools that offer the space systems program and I'm happy to say this degree and all I've learned will help me improve my standing among the NASA applicants.” —
