A Link in the Chain

I was proud to be pioneer
by Mary Ellen B.

I am 88 years old and retired from Lockheed Propulsion Company. I worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. I was the first female who did a male's job, and even had men reporting to me! I seemed to have a mind for it. I even traveled to the Cape to see a lift-off. I worked in supply chain management and shipped parts to the Cape, and worked with all the teams on the supply chain. I enjoyed my work very much, and I still enjoy receiving and reading the JPL paper. 

I was treated very well (especially for being a female) and helped on the complete supply chain. I am in good health, and I enjoy life and my pension!
