Q: How do you think your roles at the NSC have prepared you for this opportunity? A: I believe that my experience as the NSC B61-12 Joint Test Assembly (JTA) Product Readiness Team (PRT) Lead and my Weapon Intern Program background have laid the technical groundwork for stepping into this NNSA role. These roles will help me get up to speed quickly in my new role. Q: What made or encouraged you to apply for this position? A: I’m always interested in learning new things. As I mentioned before, this position will give me the chance to do just that, as well as building upon my career experiences at the NSC. Q: Have you served in any other internship or residency?
