A typical day involves checking e-mail, reviewing spectrum management proposals, checking analysis status, and completing documentation.

Growth is accomplished by taking initiative on projects and areas where improvement is needed.Mentorship is available by asking others and observing how people act. Being a mentor requires listening and providing suggestions not dictating effort.
What are some of the things you look forward to most in your job?
I enjoy making a difference and protecting NASA investments in space.
What is an example of a hard problem or project you've had to solve?
The hardest problem to solve is the communication between the customer and the employees. A lot of the issues we have are due to poor communication of expectations and issues. This occurs on both sides and can be traced to pre-existing opinions and the inability to listen to what is said. Also, the person trying to communicate may assume the other person knows what is being discussed. However, this is a bad assumption since everyone approaches things from a different perspective.
Why did you choose to work at Relative Dynamics?
Relative Dynamics had a position open to support NASA. In addition, the flexibility of working from home and on my time is appreciated.
