Role Model: Kimberly Jenkins

Back story

I work very closely with the Kennedy Space Center’s managers to assess and improve the requirements, processes, and procedures used to ensure successful execution of the center’s programs and projects.

I had the opportunity to work at Kennedy Space Center as a summer intern. This experience inspired me to become an engineer.

Throughout my career at NASA, I have had many opportunities to improve myself, and to continue learning by taking advanced education courses, as well, through on-the-job training. These experiences have allowed me to develop the skills I need to make sound engineering and management decisions. In addition, I have taken courses in professional writing, public speaking, and effective leadership. This training, along with past work experiences, have prepared me for my current job.

What I like most about my job is that I get the opportunity to work with many people doing different kinds of projects. I am always learning and experiencing new things. That’s what makes my job fun.
Get as much experience as possible in the areas that interest you. Find what you really want to do and enjoy doing it!
