Early in my career, I could see how advanced technical projects were difficult to move beyond the engineering realm. I experienced a big awakening from the Rensselaer at Work MBA program that proved beneficial as I advanced into several senior civilian positions in the Navy. Not only did I learn to master best practice in leadership from every angle of the organization, I also developed an effective approach leading projects through people — many of which I remain proud of today.”
