As a member of the Junior Officer Leadership Program, I am currently on my second rotation as an Account Manager on the Drilling Commercial Team. In this capacity, I represent the company in an external-facing role with a key customer. This relationship has allowed the company to grow in a market in which we had not been participating to our fullest potential. Prior to joining GE, I served 5 years overseas as a Contracting Officer including a deployment to Victory Base Complex, outside Baghdad in 2010. During that time, I developed the critical communication, financial, and managerial skills to succeed in my current role and continuously refined my ability to identify simple solutions to complex problems. My military experience has been incredibly beneficial and enables me to better coordinate with internal stakeholders and building quality relationships with our customers.
