“What excites me to come to work every day is the fact that each day brings forth a new learning experience.”

How have your managers/mentors supported your success at General Dynamics Mission Systems?

As early as my first week with General Dynamics Mission Systems, I was assigned a mentor with whom I had weekly meetings to sharpen my technical skills. Those meetings with my mentor have been very beneficial to expanding my knowledge that I can apply to my work. The guidance provided by my mentor and managers have also been key for me in this early stage of my career. 

What makes you excited to come to work every day?

What excites me to come to work every day is the fact that each day brings forth a new learning experience. Knowing that the work that I do on a daily basis plays a part in ensuring the safety of our nation also motivates me to come to work every day. 

What's the best part of having 26 three-day weekends as part of your 9/80 work schedule?

The best part of having 26 three-day weekends is the opportunity to travel. Much of my three-day weekends are spent traveling and exploring new areas.
