Breaking New Ground

As a women, I helped expand opportunities
by Lois H.

I worked for the government and helped them build innovative technologies! I then began working at Martin Marietta in 1980. I was the first woman at Cape Canaveral, testing the Titan and working on the launch team. I was quality control.

At first it was quite hard on the men. But they finally accepted me, and we then became great friends. Now my closet friends have passed. My life became a complete circle when I saw and worked on my first missile launch at Cape Canaveral, Florida. Thank you, Lockheed Martin!
