    PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE SUMMARY:  My 12 year overall career has been in the space/satellite operations field. I have operated and maintained numerous NASA and military satellite platforms (communications/environmental research/deep space exploratory). As a System Program Analyst (current position) I ensure that the Space Surveillance Network (SSN) message traffic that flows in and out of the Space Defense Operations Center (SPADOC) has the correct classification levels, resolve anomalous situations involving message traffic, write discrepancy reports on faulty equipment or anomalous situations, and resolve space related workstation issues that squadron personnel use perform mission related tasks. As a Space System Analyst (prior position) I was the Subject Matter Expert on all Space Operations, Space and Ground Sensor Operations, and Joint Military Space Operations research and analysis. Also assisted in providing research and analysis on future encryption and decryption type systems that would provide space interoperability in future satellite constellations and systems. As a Principal Mission Manager (prior position) I was in charge of procedure development, assisted on Integration and Testing (I&T) of the NASA environmental satellite, tested new ground system software, and tested the compatibilities between remote ground stations and space networks utilized for the mission. As an Operation Chief (prior position) I was in charge of facilitating problem isolation, troubleshooting, and restoring voice and data flow to the DSN (Deep Space Network) user community. Generated daily, weekly and monthly reports required to maintain a successful and error-free operational environment. As a Duty Satellite Manager I executed TT&C and first-level alarm analysis of on-orbit UFO (UHF Follow-On) and FLTSAT (Fleet Satellite Communication System). Performed anomaly notifications and submitted required reports. Maintained and operated associated ground system equipment, as well as first-level equipment troubleshooting and problem resolution. Performed mission planning and satellite contact scheduling for multiple satellite constellations. Supervisor to multiple satellite ground station detachment personnel and ensured mission success. My prior Air Force space career consists of me holding the position of Data System Operator in which I processed and notified leadership of space-based Infrared (IR) missile events using the Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS).  Another position held in the Air Force was as a Space System Operator in which I operated and maintained the Defense Satellite Communication System (DSCS) constellation.
