She also completed a Master of Arts in Organizational Management from George Washington University.She is a native of the Washington D.C. area.Description of presentation: I plan to discuss and show some work from the past (approximately) 5 years of covering the space program for NASA including launches, landings, the Obama and Trump administrations, astronaut tours/talks, and the rise of the commercial space programs. Most of my work is photojournalistic for NASA and I will touch on the transition to working in a more high speed, news oriented position, versus the freelance portrait and event photography that I was used to. If there are specific topics that you would like me to cover, please let me know prior to the presentation and I’ll make an effort to address them.
